Antique Silver BON BON DISHES description:

A small silver receptacle often round or oval designed to hold sweets such as after-dinner mints.

Antique Silver BON BON DISHES history:

The concept of a bon-bon dish is really a Victorian invention not to be confused with the earlier Georgian sweet-meat dish. They were made from the middle of the Victorian period, although the majority are from the 20th century, and they are still being made today.

Antique Silver BON BON DISHES design:

Often made in pairs being either round or oval in cross-section. Sometimes sitting on small pedestal feet, or sitting flat on the table. Many have pierced bodies or edges to show off the bright colours of sweet or candy wrappers.

Antique Silver BON BON DISHES collectors note:

If there is more than one bon-bon dish then for them to be a true set they must have identical hallmarks. Make sure that any pierced work is in good condition and there are no missing pieces. Their age, level of craftmanship, and condition control their prices with antique fine quality pairs commanding the highest.
