1950s English Silver Cracker Caddy

1950s English Silver Cracker Caddy


This silver serving dish was manufactured in London during the mid 20th century. It boasts a lovely pierced reticulated pattern spanning the length of both sides, as well as on both scalloped end plates. The dish is footed and has a center handle for passing and sharing with ease.

This item is classified as a cracker caddy, or cracker basket, and was intended for serving a row of perfectly baked crackers before a dinner party with cocktails and during the meal for munching. This is a rare type of serviceware, and may be used for crackers or bread today. It is suitable for a multitude of modern uses, including as a vanity dish to hold rings and jewelry, or as a lovely little catchall to hold various sundries for convenience. Add to your silver collection for an interesting find, use at your next dinner party, or gift as a sweet vanity accessory.
