Silver plated pedestal dish & sweet bowl, Oneida USA, fluted design, matching pair
Small silver plated comport or pedestal dish with a matching flat-bottomed sweet dish by Oneida, one of the leading manufacturers of fine silverware and cutlery in the USA.
This really is an unusual and lovely item. Each piece is in a wavy, fluted style and the comport pedestal is very stable with a nice quality feel. This is enhanced by the lustrous silver plating which also appears to be of very good quality.
A nice feature is that the flat dish exactly fits in the dish of the comport, making for easy storage.
This little pair would be perfect for serving small fruits,sauces and dressings, olives, sweets or savouries - great for entertaining. Try to protect the silver plating from corrosion by acidic foods or fruit juices though - for example by lining with tinfoil or a paper doyley.
Condition is generally very good. One or two isolated small pocks and minor surface scratches as you would expect of a used item but no other significant wear to the plating, Minor ding to centre.
Bowl diameter (all pieces) 14.5cm (5.75 inches)
Comport height 9cm (3.5 inches)
At the time of writing we have two pairs of this set available.
