This exceptional and rare trivet, or dish cross, was crafted by the famed Georgian silversmith Hester Bateman. Displaying this renowned maker's trademark understated elegance, it is comprised of a central cross with four bracket feet, each adjustable to fit any shape or size dish, and each boasting a boldly pierced design. Also known as a dish stand, this remarkable piece is used to keep hot dishes warm and off a table’s surface, where it could ruin the finish.

Bateman’s classical style and expert craftsmanship have translated into some of the most highly collected sterling pieces of all time. Her light and skillful hand characterize her work to this day.
