Every table deserves something unique. This Antique Victorian Silver Plate 3 Part Dish adds a little extra sparkle to any table setting. In the 19th century, these 3 Part Dishes were created and called BBC’s. They were used for bread, butter and cheese. Whether for a holiday, birthday or impromptu gathering of friends and family, this 3 Part Dish can be used for many purposes such as hors d’oeuvres or after dinner candies.

This handsome Antique Victorian 3 Part Dish features three different sections affixed together with a handle that connects all three sections. It is a variation in design to the typical and popular Antique Victorian 3 Part Shell Dish but this one is designed with a tree and its branches. Quite substantial in size, it has an intricate flourished handle in the middle of the piece making it quite easy to pass around. Our Antique Victorian Silver Plate 3 Part Dish is in excellent condition and is very useable as well as being a real conversation piece.
