Product Description

A very unusual cased set of 6 silver plated little dishes that have clips that enable them to attach themselves to dinner plates.

The use for them is not very clear, as they are quite rare, with some people using them for oysters and others for holding the fish bones, off the main plate. It seems more likely that it was used for oysters and they consist of a slightly triangular shape, with a shallow central bowl and decorated with repousse vine leaf and grape decoration. The underside has 2 tongues that pinch the edge of the plate. The underside is well marked with the maker’s logo and name for WALKER & HALL SHEFFIELD ENGLAND – 51211 – PATENT – SHEFFIELD PLATE OLD STYLE – 33. There is also a capital Sigma letter which dates the set to 1902. The 6 dishes fit into a purple baize lined polished oak box. The velour fasteners for several of the dishes have become unstuck, but can be easily repaired. The wooden case has a white ivory inlaid label with the Walker & Hall details.

Size dish: 10.5 x 10 x 4 cm (4 1/8 x 3 15/16 x 1 9/16 inches)
Size case: 39.5 x 28.5 x 6 cm (15.5 x 11 ¼ x 2 3/8 inches)
Weight: 1672 g
