A lovely example of a Irish silver dish ring with pierced decoration of flowers, swans, cattle, musician, cygnets and a cartouche to the front inscribed with initials and the date June 5th 1916, the makers mark is slightly rubbedbut is for James Wakely & Frank Clarke Wheeler.

 

Silver dish rings (sometimes incorrectly called potato rings) were first made in Ireland and also in England from around about 1780, but it was in Ireland that they developed into items of exquisite beauty, they were originally of silver and highly ornamented. They are usually elliptical in outline and wider at the bottom than the top. Use was made of both piercing and repousse work to obtain the highest decorative effects, this style of decoration was necessary to help the heat escape from hot table dishes through the piercing, this is a stunning example in wonderful condition.
