Entree Dish

Taylor and Lawrie
Retailer Bailey and Kitchen American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 705

This covered entrée dish, a rare form in American silver, reflects the burgeoning popularity of the dinner service at this date. Bailey and Kitchen, one of the leading silver and jewelry retailers in nineteenth-century Philadelphia, introduced Britain’s sterling standard to the United States in an effort to compete with English imports. The design of the dish, especially the scroll-and-shell feet, harks back to London silver of the 1760s and 1770s.
