Antique Norwegian Solid Silver 6" Long Viking Boat Shape Dish By B Lohne 1920's:
Antique Norwegian Solid Silver 6" Long Viking Boat Shape Dish by B Lohne 1920's
This Antique Novelty Shape Dish measuresapproximately 6 inchesor 153 mm across its total length from one foot to the other by just over 2 inches or 53 mm across the width of the central foot from side to side, the dish itself is just under 5 3/4 inches or 145 mm across the length of its body from one dragons head to the other by 1 7/8 inches or 48 mm across the width of its upper rim from side to side and it stands 3 3/8 inches or 86 mm tall to the tops of the dragons heads.
The dish is made from 76.4 grams of solid silver in the novelty form of a Viking long boat that has been embossed or raised relief decorated with a planked body that has shields along its upper edge and a mythical beast or dragons head at either end, the dish stands on a raised relief decorated crossed form fixed stand and it has Not been engraved with a previous owners initials or family monogram, the central section of the crossed stand has been beenimpressed with the Norwegian 830S standard solid silver mark alongwith the Bergen silversmith or makers mark Lo of Brødrene Lohne who are recorded as being founded in 1921 all as photographed below, I estimate that this novelty shape dish was made circa 1920's.
Thecondition is used and near Mint for its age.
The Dish has No Dents, No Splits,No Cracks, No Holes and No Repairs that I can find,the dish stands straight, the decoration and definition is very crisp, the dish holds liquid without leaking, the Norwegian silver and makers marks are still clearly legible althoughas thisnovelty shape dish is a used antique it does have some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use along with the patina of age that is to be expected and a gentle clean would not go amiss.Personally I think that this novelty shape dish can still be used today and that it would make a superb addition to any cabinet collection, I also think that it looks absolutely fantastic considering that it'saround 90 or soyears old.
This Superb Quality Antique Norwegian Solid Silver Novelty 6" Viking Long Boat Shape Dish by Brødrene Lohne of Bergen circa 1920's is one ofseveralpieces of antique and collectable silverthat I have also listed.
