    This brass serving dish which was once silver plated, was recovered from Moquet farm during a 'dig' in the early 1990's.

    Cheers,

    Very nice Steve!
    A friend of mine who passed away several years ago, recovered it on one of his many trips to France. His wife - who is French - did not like having it in the house, she is very superstitious and thought that it gave off 'bad' feelings. She told Stan to take it out of the house, and he gave it to me. I am happy to report that it has never given off any 'bad' feelings in our house!
