Meriden Britannia Hammered Sterling Footed Dish

Meriden Britannia had been a well-established company producing quality silverplate for half a century when it entered the sterling market with the purchase of Wilcox & Evertsen in 1895. Shortly thereafter the whole firm became a part of International Silver Company, but the use of the MB nameplate continued until about 1930.

This open dish likely dates from early in the 20th century. Contemporary catalogs identity the form as a mayonnaise bowl. It stands 3" at the highest, is 5 1/2"... Click for details
