Antique Hotel Casino, Mers France Platter
I just love these antique silverplate platters from the Hotel Casino in Mers, France. The hotel is no longer in existence, but I've included a photo of an old postcard that I assume is from the same hotel.
The platter has the hotel's name engraved in script across the rim. It measures 11-3/4" in diameter and is in nice condition. Some light scratches commensurate with age. Also, some wear on the bottom.
The faint remains of the manufacturer, Tissier, is on the bottom.
The fact that these are from a French hotel casino, makes it extra-special!
Note: this is for one platter. Please see our other listing for smaller sized platters from the same hotel.
