Developed during the 19th Century, the silver bread dish is an adaptation of the earlier cake basket, which was a popular dining table item during the Georgian period. Unlike their predecessors, silver bread dishes have no carrying handle, and are typically oval in shape and have pierced sides, often in the Neoclassical Revival taste. Art Deco examples from the 20th Century are seen featuring ivory handles and plainer sides without the pierced detailing.
