This small Victorian Silver dish is from the same stable as my previous Collectors Weekly post:

http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/67702-queen-victoria-silver-dish

This particular dish is also made by the famous silversmith Sampson Mordan. Regular viewers of my Collectors Weekly posts will know I have a collection of Mordan and Company's work. I continue to add to it. For anyone interested: I have documented the history of Sampson Mordan (and Company) in some of my other CW posts.

This dish would have been made as a commemorative "pin" dish but I use it, and it's companions, as pen "nib" dishes. This one is made around a 1900 One Shilling sterling silver coin, whereas the previous one is constructed around a Florin coin (Two Shillings).

Both dishes are Hallmarked in the same way:
London (Leopards Head).
Lion Rampant (Sterling Silver).
1900 ("E" in a specific shaped impressed surround).
SM & Co in an impressed square cartouche.
