A set of two lovely antique circa 1913 to 1920s hammered silver plated serving dishes from the famous Voisin restaurant in New York City! Voisin’s was a classic, high-end French restaurant that opened in 1913 in the Montana building (in fact, Voisin is considered the first fine dining restaurant to be established in a modern apartment building), the restaurant moved when that building was demolished in 1953 and survived a few more years until 1969. The restaurant was featured a number of times in literature including F Scott Fitzgerald‘s “The Lost Decade” and Ian Fleming‘s “ Diamonds Are Forever.” 

These dishes are in excellent condition, with no dents or damage. They are silverplate over nickel, one of the dishes has most of its plating with only minor wear to the back and edges, and another dish has more of a slight brassy tone because more of the silver plating is worn away. Each dish is marked with the restaurant name on the top, and marked underneath with Jos Heinrichs marks.

Each dish measures 6 3/4 in long by 4 1/8 in. wide by 1 in tall
