Napoleon III First Standard (.950) Silver Platter, third quarter 19th century, Paris, by Paul Bour (1826-1902; active 1856-1873), of oval form with gadrooned edge, the rim engraved with the Silver Pilawa arms of the Polish noble houses of Potocki, Kamieniecki et al., l. 17-1/2", w. 10-3/4", 41.04 t. oz.


In generally quite good condition, with no issues noted beyond some surface wear consistent with age and use. Some light scuffs on the plateau, and a 1/2" dent on the underside of the rim (shallow and not visible on the upper surface). Well-engraved armorial. Marked (on the underside) with the French First Standard "Minerva" head and the "PB" maker's mark of Paul Bour; the Minerva mark repeated on the upper edge. A very nice piece.
