Extremely rare 1940's to 50's large silverplated hand woven mesh casserole serving dish with rectangular roaster glass insert. I've searched and searched and can't find another like it. It's quite unique and makes a lovely statement for fine dining and entertaining. It has a replacement Marinex line of bakeware made of Borosilicate glass, which is resistant to high and low temperatures. They can go from freezer to oven or microwave, table to the refrigerator, and dishwasher safe.
CONDITION: Excellent vintage without damage or repairs. Needs a good silver cleaning. I did a bit on the top to show how it cleans up but I do not clean silver and leave that to the new owner to decide on patina.
SIZE: 18 1/2 inches handle to handle and 10 inches wide. The inside dimensions are 13 1/2 inches by 8 3/4 inches by 2 inches high.
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
