Table Dish Rings (sometimes erroneously referred to as Potato Rings) were first made in Ireland and also in England from around about 1780, were originally of silver and highly ornamented. They were usually elliptical in outline and wider in each dimension below than above. The largest known examples were up to ten inches in diameter and up to four inched in height. 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, blue (sometimes green or clear) hand blown glass liners were a later addition. This is a stunning example in wonderful condition.
