A most elegant boat-shaped silver sweet dish fitted with charming cast and hand chased swan handles and a gilded interior.

Since ancient times, swans have been associated with tranquillity and nobility, featuring in mythology and folklore around the world. Their high status is likely to have originated because of their perceived beauty and natural behaviour; they are solitary birds, strong and aggressively protective of their young but at the same time graceful and elegant on the water.
