|An extraordinarily attractive American Aesthetic period silver plated domed three piece butter serving dish c1860s-70. Made by the Manhattan Plate Company of New York (1856-77) - later became the Manhattan Silver Plate Co (1877-1898) and then part of International Silver, this beauty stands 8-1/8" tall and 9-1/4" across the handles. It has a great looking finial in the shape of a female bust with ornate incised decoration with a decorated satin finish band. The base has an Aesthetic geometric design on the rim and ornate ball-terminal feet; also included is the original butter liner insert. It is stamped MANHATTAN PLATE CO. NY 442 TRIPLE PLATE. Manhattan Plate Co. produced a fine enough quality ware to be sold at Tiffany & Company of New York. This unusual high style Victorian serving piece would look great on any table, and it is in excellent condition with no dents, corrosion, damage or repairs other than the loss of the plating on the exterior of the dish leaving a pewter-like finish. There are traces of plating on the interior and only a touch of bending to the roundness of the base.
