MIDDLETOWN SILVERWARE/MSC Vintage DOUBLE VEGETABLE BOWL +MEAT/ROAST PLATTER TRAY
A two (2) piece lot of silverplate from Middletown Silverware Company.
We are pleased to present this two (2) piece lot of silverplate from Middletown Silverware Company for your consideration. You will receive the following:
1. Double Vegetable Bowl #8111 . A nice shiny piece with lots of life left, the Bowl is oval shaped and measures about 3-1/2 inches high (to the top of the handled lid). The bottom section is 11-1/4 inches long and 9 inches wide. There are some shallow scratches to the interior of the bottom section with one tiny spot, about 1/32 inch in diameter, where the silverplate is worn through. Only light tarnish is seen, and this piece should be easily polished to an impressive shine. We rate its condition as very good.
2. Oval Meat/Roast Platter/Tray #8116. The Platter measures 1-1/2 inches high (at the edge), 16 inches long, and 11-1/2 inches wide. It sits on four ornate feet, and features an interior depression to collect the juices from the meat or roast. Wear is greater on this piece, with some areas of brassing seen near the edges of the depression. Tarnish is light to moderate, and there are some utensil marks visible, but none cutting deeply into the metal. The underside shows a bit heavier layer of tarnish, likely not being polished as often as the visible top. The Platter still has plenty of life remaining, and should clean up substantially. We rate its condition as good to very good.
Both pieces have Middletown Silverware marks on their underside (both shown in the pictures). Their combined weight is 5 pounds 2 ounces.
