Superb older (we're told Victorian age) Silver item bought in New York city - Post WWII - Older High Quality Silverplate. This piece is approx. 6 1/2” TALL and about 8" wide. Hallmarked as shown, silver shows minimal age/wear as depicted in listing pictures. Estate VICTORIAN AGE ANTIQUE. Hallmarked Silver.
View the exterior and interior pictures posted, this is a nice piece with another generation or three's worth of life. This was rarely used for the big parties in my parent's home, used only for special events and shows some minimal use evidence little to no under metal bleeding, no significant dents/major dings or deep scratches. Expect typical surface use scratches, sits right. This was a well-cared for item that was used for Sunday post Church tea table. No monograms / engravings. The classic style will work with just about any silver flatware pattern - from colonial Gorham Fairfax, to fancier Cinderella, King Albert, classic Etruscan, simple Dolly Madison, grand Francis I, English Gadroon to Old Master --- all and more can be paired with this classic vintage Revere Bowl style footed punch bowl and tray. Collector's item, yet eminently appropriate for contemporary use.
My grandparents collected quality Sheffield items. They were serious about entertaining in a way I am not. My family invested in quality items for gracious living.
