This candy dish measures 6" in diameter rim to rim and 8 1/4" handle tip to handle tip. It stands 1 1/2" tall to the top edge and 2 1/8" to the highest points of the handles. The weight is 4.7 T. oz.
It is stamped "International" along with the Simpson, Hall, Miller emblem on the underside. Other marks include "Sterling," "B33A," "Patented" and "Wedgwood" for the pattern name.
The design replicates that on the flatware of the same name and is embellished with additional classical elements in the holloware. This has two applied handles that are decorated with acanthus leaves. There is no monogram or inscription, nor removal of the same.
This is in superb estate condition. There is no polishing wear and the finish has a fine patina. There are a couple of shallow pings in the sidewall, but these show only upon close inspection.
