A rare and very beautiful 17th century sterling silver dish with original gilt finish. With leaf side handles and decorated with plants and flowers. Although rather shallow, this is probably a wine taster. The centre is engraved with prick dots and initials M over I*R. Weight 186 grams, 6 troy ounces. Width across handles 23 cm. Diameter 17 cms. English silver hallmarks stamped around the edge for London 1655. Makers mark "M" over a star (Jacksons P.121).
Excellent. There are a few minor places of wear in the gilding on the highlights and from general use. There is one larger patch of wear (see photo below) to the gilding on one side of the outer rim however this blends in very well with the overall appearance.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
