A compote (or 'comport' from a 16th Century variation of compote) was used for serving fruits, nuts, or sweets, and was typically made from glass, porcelain or silver. Silver examples are most highly sought after, and some of the Victorian examples are exquisitely detailed, often featuring cherubs holding the serving bowls, and floral or fruit chasing throughout.
