RARE ANTIQUE Robert Wallace & Sons Sterling Silver & Crystal Glass Relish Dish. This listing is for a stunning, rare early 20th century Robert Wallace & Sons sterling silver and crystal glass relish dish.Here is some background on Wallace Silver history and timeline: In 1871, Wallace bought out his partner, renamed the company R. Wallace & Sons, and established a second business, known as Wallace Brothers, with his sons and sons-in-law.
Wallace and Sons added silver to its inventory, introducing three lines of sterling silver flatware-Hawthorne, The Crown, and St. Leon-while Wallace Brothers focused on silver-plated flatware. The two businesses were merged in 1879 and the Wallace name began to gain wider recognition for its silver projects. In the 1930s, Wallace improved its mass-production techniques and released the first of William Warren's famous series of "Third Dimension Beauty" flatware patterns, named for the ornate 3-D quality of their designs, which are visible from the front, back, and profile of the pieces.
The series of six eventually included Rose Point (1934), Sir Christopher (1936), Stradivari (1937), Grande Baroque (1941), Grand Colonial (1942), and Romance of the Sea (1951). Warren regularly incorporated roses in his designs, like those seen on the silverplate line Roseanne (1932) or the silverware pattern Royal Rose (1962).
This dish has a 3 dimensional floral "Rose Point" detailing along the sterling silver rim which is indeed gorgeous and perfectly offsets the divided crystal insert with an artfully etched rose and vine repeating motif that is finished with an Art Deco style center of blocky, geometrically carved petals.
