A Superb Pair of Victorian Silver Entree or Serving Dishes London 1855
A very good quality pair of Victorian silver entree dishes of shaped oval form. The borders cast with scallops and scrolling foliage. The twist- off cast silver handles with serpentine foliate decoration and fruit and foliate bases.
Each dish marked for London 1855 by Edward and John Barnard. Each handle also marked the same. Each dish and handle is numbered 3 and 4.
Superb and very attractive, these dishes are in completely original condition with very little sign of wear. The silver is of very robust gauge and the cast decoration is all crisp. The handles are particularly fine with very detailed and realistic workmanship. No signs of any damage or repair. Lids and handles are all a good fit. An unusually fine pair.
