Caithness Morven with Dishes
« on: September 26, 2011, 08:05:46 PM »
This is interesting

Not seen these side dishes before - quite nifty the way they wrap around the base - are they a match - mmmm - I don't think so.

Not so sure Adam, the odds of making such a perfect match are astronomical, at best only a handful could have been made - did CG even have the facilities to make them though? Maybe outsourced to a presser. It is of course possible that they were mould blown and cut down.

Isn't this one of those nibbles sets that sat on a teak tray with a bowl in the middle for a dip. Crudité set, or something like that, they were called I think?

Only handling the pieces could confirm if the dishes are the same metal.

Mother had a set of those dishes - exactly the same - she removed them from whatever thing they were in and made a big copper dish to hold them. There was a small round one in the middle - not a decanter.
I strongly agree it's a marriage - but quite a good one. But you'd still need to have both decanter and dishes in your mitts to see if the marriage works in reality.
The dishes are quite thick and clunky.

The teak tray and bowls thing was my assumption too.

Well look here:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DIGSMED-LAZY-SUSAN-/250754112268?pt=UK_Collectables_Kitchenalia_RL&hash=item3a621c1b0c

The trays are a uniform colour and not cased......unlike the Caithness 'Morven' decanter which has a graduated colouring and is cased.

Perfectly correct Nigel :sun:
Thanks for pointing this out - I forgot to mention the lack of casing on the dishes. :pb:
