Hallmarked Silver 2 handled Butter Dish with Frosted Glass insert, Chester 1922
A superb Hallmarked Silver 2 handled Butter Dish.
This has a Frosted Glass insert with star cut base. The Silver
body has 2 small plain handles and it sits on 4 small bun feet.
The hallmark comprises the makers mark 'S.I.Ld' - Stokes &
Ireland Ltd - William Henry Stokes & Arthur George Ireland, the
Lion passant mark, the town mark of Chester, and a letter 'W'
dating it to 1922. It measures 7cm (2 3/4 inches) in diameter,
excluding the handles and it stands 2.3cm (7/8 inch) tall.
This has a slight wobble when sat on a hard surface although
when on a table cloth doesn't. There is no damage to the Silver
body or the glass insert although the Silver would benefit from
further cleaning and the glass has a few small marks to the frosted
underneath surface. The hallmark is very clear.
