A Set of Four George II Antique English Silver Strawberry Dishes
A fine set of silver strawberry dishes, of somewhat unusual oval form. (Most are round.)<br /><br />
Michael Clayton defines strawberry dishes thus: "This a convenient name and now generally accepted serves to describe a whole family of circular or occasionally oval shallow dessert dishes with fluted upcurved sides flat bottoms and escalloped rims."<br /><br />
The arms are those of Magrath.<br /><br />
Provenance:<br />Sotheby's London, 16 July 1970, lot 100 (to Walter Wilson)"
