Elegant antique French sterling silver 11.5" wide Écuelle or legumier, an ornate serving dish with laurel garland & gold plated "vermeil" interior!  Nice large size, this one is 11.5" wide with the handles, the actual bowl portion has an 8 1/4" diameter and it weighs a hair over 14 troy ounces.  The interior of the bowl is gold plated, likely 18k gold "vermeil" as was most common with the French though it is a bit worn or faded from the 100+ years of polishing.  Marked with the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within those marks means it's in .950 silver (95% pure so higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver).  The silversmith marks are for Auguste Guyot, Paris circa 1903-1913.  One of two similar pieces that we're adding today so, be sure to browse some while you're with us.  We have one of the finest extensive offerings of antique French and European silver and are sure to tempt.  Thanks!

Very good condition.  Possibly a small dimple or two but no larger dents, no damage or repairs.  As noted above, the vermeil interior shows some fading or wear.  See pictures for weights and measurements.
