C1940, American sterling solid silver lovely fluted comport on pedestal base, by Richard Dimes Co. of South Boston, Massachusetts. This company was founded in 1908. He originally started the holloware room of the Towle Company, and eventually started his own business.
Weighing 435 grams, this is a very substantial and unusual piece, suitable for dessert, cake, fruit, and cheese.
Considering the value of just the scrap weight of this comport, this is a wonderful value, as silver prices continue to soar.
The beautifully fluted top is 9.5 inches in diameter, and rests firmly on a stepped and flared base.
It stands 3.5 inches high.
This sterling fineness is .925 fine, identical to the silver content of English sterling silver.
Engraved with the date 1940 underneath on the inside of the pedestal, and also with the model number 186.
In very good condition, with just the usual centre surface scratching from serving pieces, this would grace any dinner table or sideboard, and is an excellent investment, given the soaring price of solid silver and the heavy weight of this piece.
