This stylish three-piece coin silver butter dish was made circa 1865 by Ball Black & Company, New York City. It is etched and engraved with cat tails and is stamped with the maker's mark and English Sterling, but it is definitely coin. Dimensions of this handsome dish are 7 inches in height to the top of the finial and 6-3/4 inches in diameter. Silver scholars claim that Ball, Black & Co. was the leading jewelry house in the nation until it was overtaken by Tiffany & Co. The Prince of Wales placed orders for jewelry and silverware worth $12,000 during his visit to the store in October 1860. Reputedly, chests of silver and jewelry belonging to Southern families survived the ravages of the Civil War inside Ball, Black & Co.'s vault, the first modern safe deposit vault system in the country.
