For sale is this Liberty Cymric silver muffin dish. The designer is almost certainly Oliver Baker, and a near identical muffin dish with Baker like feet is model 571 in the Liberty Silver Sketch Book. The base is marked for 1901, the lid for 1900, dating the piece to around May 1901 when the assay dates changed. This is a rare, fairly early, piece of Liberty Cymric silver in very good condition and a good gauge of silver.
