A late Victorian silver asparagus serving dish, oblong in form with Chippendale style moulded rim and two handles. This dish has its original grille to hold the asparagus. Atkin Brothers was known for producing goods of an exceptional quality.

Britain's asparagus season kicks off on April 23rd - St George's Day - and given our penchant for eating fruits and vegetables in season, it is not uncommon to eat British asparagus every single day across a four-to-six-week period.  It can grow up to 100mm in one day, can cure hangovers and improve your libido! King Louis XIV, Thomas Jefferson and Queen Victoria were all ardent fans of the vegetable.
