WHITE STAR LINE RMS OLYMPIC / TITANIC-Era 1st-Class Dish Cover by Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co. A beautiful and rare silver-plated entrée dish cover for the White Star Line. The cover is heavy for a simple entrée dish and may have been used for one of Goldsmith's galley service line warmers. The side is marked with the White Star Line house flag. The interior is hallmarked: "Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Company, " "112 Regent Street W, " "Regent Plate, " Unfortunately, there is no registration number to date the piece, though Goldsmith's was the silver service contractor by time the RMS OLYMPIC was launched and likely dates to the 1910 decade.The rim is in the simple Reed or Thread-pattern used in the silver service supplied by Elkington for the White Star Line. The cover is approximately 110 years old, with wear commensurate to its age and use on board the White Star Line's finest ocean liners. There are two dents to the top and a few smaller dings around the cover but is in otherwise excellent condition.
This is a rare piece of White Star Line history and will be a wonderful addition to your collection. ITEM DIMENSIONS (approximate): 7 Dia.
ITEM WEIGHT (approximate): 1 lb. In 1977 I read a book about sea disasters and one of the stories was about a White Star liner named RMS TITANIC. I do not know why she caught my attention, but I began to read everything about her that I could find in my local library: Walter Lord's iconic A Night To Remember, Lawrence Beesley's The Loss of the S. Titanic, and Archibald Gracie's The Truth About The Titanic. These books fueled my curiosities and whet my appetite for more knowledge.
TITANIC would spur a life-long interest of literature and history. Over 40 years later, those original three books have grown into a large eclectic library and artifact collection covering numerous topics. Each historical item is very special, capturing a specific time and place in history.
Each piece is unique and has its own personal story to tell; the who, what, where, and the why that we dream to know. I would like to get this special artifact back into circulation and onto someone's display shelf.

I handle documents and photos with the use of white cotton gloves. I handle unstable ceramics and glass with the use of nitrile gloves.
I hand wash and dry silver goods. I limit the polishing of silver, as this process removes a layer of plating each time. However, many of the sale items will receive a light polish to enhance their appearance and defects in the photos. This item was displayed or photographed in a home with a small dog.
