A vintage hand engraved and pierced silver plated footed oblong dish or basket with moveable handle, possibly originally intended for use as a bon bon dish or pen holder. The base bears no makers mark but it is imprinted with the words Hand Engraved and Made in England, with the additional words Best Silver Plate at the centre.
The dish has been lightly cleaned but might benefit from further, more expert, cleaning. Structurally sound, and stable when placed on a flat surface.
The dish measures just under 8.5in (excluding the handle) by about 3.25in at the rim, and stands just over 1.75in high (including the feet) to the top of the rim but excluding the handle. With the handle, the total height of the dish is just over 4in. The depth of the main body is just over 1.25in. Exact age unknown but believed to have some age, and possibly dates from the 1970s.
