Pair of Edwardian Silver Dish Rings

A lovely pair of Edwardian silver dish rings.

They are identical, and pierced with rural scenes including goats, cows, dogs, trees, leaves, flowers, fruit and scrolls. Each also features a woman holding a shepherd's crook and a man in traditional dress playing a horn. There is a blank cartouche bordered by scrolls and leaves on each dish ring. Each has a blue glass liner.

This is a superb pair of dish rings, made during a period when they enjoyed great popularity. Many very high quality reproductions of Georgian originals were made from around 1890.

Dish rings were originally made to stand hot plates on the dining room table. By the time this pair were made, it had become the practice to fill them with glass liners and use them as fruit bowls in the centre of the table

This delightful pair of Edwardian silver dish rings was made in 1901 by the Goldsmiths and Silversmiths Company of 112 Regent Street, London.
