Large pewter platter which was originally intended as a serving dish for sliced meats – game in particular.
Designed by Franz Dautenberg and made by the German company Imperial Zinn in the very early 1900’s. This company was also known by the name Bitter & Gobbers, after the two founders.
Showing a very nicely detailed grouse (or is it perhaps a capercaillie ?) in flight, together with branches, needles and cones of forest pine trees. There is a blank cartouche at the top – so much better than those that display previously engraved initials.
