Online Auction Description

Heavy silverplate was used on serving pieces like this divided vegetable serving dish made by The Lawrence B. Smith Company, Boston, Massachusetts, the LBS.Co. shown in the makers mark:


[crusaders cross] LBS.CO [shield 2

[crown] 4]

N __ S


It is about 2 3/4” deep, each of the three sections is about 7 1/2” at its widest point.

12” across over the raised center point where the section walls join.

Scratch marks from serving utensils are evident on interior surfaces as you would expect from an item of tableware that was used often. My picture makes this area appear somewhat better than it actually is.

On the other hand, the exterior is in remarkably good condition. There is some wear to rim and small worn spots on the bottom from contact with table surfaces. Serving dishes of the period were often plated three and four times to give them added resistance to wear.

No cover included although serving dishes like this usually had covers. It is a heavy piece, weighing in at over 2 lbs.

It is still a handsome piece, understated in design and wearing its age well. The Lawrence B Smith Co. was founded in 1887 and continued through the first half of the 20th Century.

Family lore says this piece belonged to a Detroit bride of the late 19th Century. Or it may have been the bride who married into the family soon after World War I.

It remained with the same family until recently.
