Absolutely stunning 1930s escargot server made by Reed & Barton. This was likely for hotel use, though there is no name present. The piece has been professionally polished by a silversmith and has a gleaming bright finish. The feet are outstandingly ornate. Four removable cups that hold escargot. Marked "Reed & Barton Silver Soldered" on underside. Date mark is 1935. Quite a heavy piece.

Each well-preserved piece, from the late 1800s through the mid-20th century, reflects the style and elegance of another time and place.
