Mcgarrett50
(23 items)

I received this piece about 20 yrs ago in a box lot for $10.00 it was full of assorted and mismatched silver plate . This is marked on the bottom Haddon Plate Sheffield Reproduction. I have learned that this is the trade name for McGloshen and Clark Co of Niagara Falls and sold through Eatons dept Stores between 1900-1940. The front just has the T.Eatons Co Trophy engraved on it. I was wondering if this could have been an in store sample for people to pick from when choosing a trophy??

    One more question what is this called and should it have a glass dish inside? Thanks again for your time and info.

    Mcgarrett50, it's called a covered serving dish. Normally, there is no liner but I have seen divided glass liners on new ones.

    Regarding the "trophy" issue, see this listing (they might have sold it if it had been polished):
