Antique Silver ASPARAGUS SETS description:

An oval or rectangular dish upon which sits a wirework rack for serving asparagus at the dining table.

Antique Silver ASPARAGUS SETS history:

Although asparagus has been grown in the UK since the 16th century, it is extremely rare to find silver server tongs before 1790, and it was not until the Victorian period that asparagus server sets were introduced.

Antique Silver ASPARAGUS SETS design:

An oval or rectangular dish upon which sits a wirework rack, and often having a removable sauce boat, and a set of server tongs. Most asparagus server sets were fairly plain with applied floral, gadroon, or reed edges.

Antique Silver ASPARAGUS SETS collectors note:

All items must be clearly hallmarked. Sometimes sets included not only the dish and frame but also a sauce boat and pair of server tongs. In this case all items must have matching hallmarks. Look carefully at the wirework frame to check for repairs.
