This fine pair of Tiffany & Co. two handled covered entrée dishes was part of an extensive collection of hollowware made in the Chrysanthemum pattern to coordinate with Tiffany’s Chrysanthemum flatware. It was common in upper class American Society to have had Tiffany manufacture extensive suites of silver to grace not only the dining room, but the entire house as well. One can only imagine the extensive collection these covered entrée dishes were a part of. Today they would be a welcomed addition to any home.
