$175.00

Measuring 7" in diameter, this relatively heavy at 6.7 T. oz., plate or shallow dish is marked "S. Kirk & Son Co" and "925/1000" on the underside, which was a mark used 1896-1924.

It has a 1 3/4" wide, double border rim that has a hand raised leaf and floral design. Repousse as represented on this reflects a style and technique that was a hallmark of Baltimore silver, and this applies especially so to Kirk.

The interior has a line script monogram. As the base is flat bottomed, the piece could could be used as a wine coaster.

In excellent overall estate condition, the repousse retains clear design detail, and is free of polishing wear, dents, or pinholes. The base has light pinprick nicking and some slight unevenness, mostly evident only in a raking light.
