Silver dish rings were first made in the 18th Century, with examples in good condition from this period being rare. They were used to hold hot plates of food away from the surface of the table or sideboard, protecting the wood from being damaged by heat. Dish rings became a speciality of Dublin silversmiths from about 1750, resulting in the later misnomer of ‘Irish Potato Ring’
