Vintage Silverplate Royal Navy Centerpiece Dish


With a rich history dating back centuries, the British Royal Navy is the oldest of the United Kingdom's armed services. Through the ages, the Royal Navy played a key role in establishing and maintaining Britain's prominence around the globe. For well over 300 years, during the 17th, 18th, 19th and the first half of the 20th century, the Royal Navy was the most powerful naval force in the world. It wasn't until after World War II, that the Royal Navy was finally surpassed by the United States Navy as the world's largest. Even to this day, the British Royal Navy is regarded as one of the world's foremost navies.

Produced exclusively for use on the officer's table of the British Royal Navy, we are pleased to offer this magnificent Vintage Silverplate Centerpiece Dish. Handsome and stately, the curved silhouette is embellished with an applied bead border and the piece is crested with the British Royal Navy's regal anchor and crown crest.

Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good vintage condition. 14 1/4" x 9 1/2" x 2 1/2".


Learn More about Hotel Silver

Once found in Grand Hotels, chic cafés, elegant restaurants as well as luxury steamships and the dining cars of the great locomotives, vintage hotel silver beautifully evokes the Golden Age of Travel. Enduringly crafted using sturdy nickel silver as its base metal and coated with a thick plating of pure, gleaming silver, vintage hotel silver is unmistakeable for its simple, classic lines and its pleasing heft. Often crested with the name of the establishment, the pieces bear the gentle, lovely patina often referred to as a “butler’s finish”.

Produced by the great silversmiths here in the United States, as well as those in Britain and on the Continent, most hotel silver dates from the 1920s to the 1940s. Prized for its perfect blend of form and function, hotel silver was made to withstand the rigors of daily use. Highly collectible, vintage hotel silver is a wonderful addition to any home.

Evoking the days of elegant travel, there are many new ways that hotel silver can be enjoyed. A milk pitcher or sugar basin makes an elegant vase for flowers or fresh herbs on the kitchen counter. A collection of oval platters adds sparkle and depth in a hutch when not being called into service for a buffet or dinner party. A toast rack becomes the perfect way to display photographs, hold fingertip towels in a powder room or organize mail in the office. Mix and match cutlery brings a relaxed sophistication and elegance to any tablescape. Whatever the piece, vintage hotel silver is sure to stir memories not only of your own travels, but of exotic destinations and ports of call from parts unknown.
