About the object

Attractive sterling silver small dish circa 1760, either very early George III or late George II. 
Maker: James Warren. 

The dish has a crenelated border with raised ridges beneath. A contemporary crest of a bunch of grapes with two shamrocks behind is engraved in the centre.

The reverse is stamped with the maker's mark which has been partially over-stamped by the Dublin harp with the Hibernia mark on the other side. 

This a very pretty dish and it is quite possible that it was used as a counter dish.

Condition report

Very good with a very pleasing patina. There is a small dig visible on the upper left-hand side of the crest caused by the pressure of the stamping of an assay mark.
