Beautiful vintage silverplate ornately engraved SANDWICH PLATE by Benedict Manufacturing Company of East Syracuse, New York in their "ROSELEAF" or "ROSE LEAF" pattern. (c. early 1950's)  No dings, dents, bends or other damage to note.

Because the sides gently slope up, the photos make this silver sandwich plate look "deeper" than it is. It is MUCH flatter (only 1/4" tall) way out at the ends.

Benedict Mfg. Co. was founded in 1984 with M. Stewart Benedict as president.  They were incorporated in 1902 and reorganized in 1906 as T.N. Benedict Mfg. Co.  Their principal business at the start was silverplated holloware and they continued in this line of goods.  Benedict Manufacturing was out of business in 1953.

This 7-1/2" ornately engraved sandwich plate features a decorative edge with a border of deeply engraved "rose" leaves along the outside edge.  The inside of this silverplate sandwich plate  features scrolls and leaves.  The center is plain, and, as seen in the photos, shows an area of approximately 1/2 of the center 1" diameter cartouche with silver loss.  Though initially intended by Benedict as a sandwich plate, today, it could just as easily be used to serve bon-bons, petit fours or small finger sandwiches. 

This uncommon silverplate sandwich plate measures 7-1/2" in diameter, is 1/4" high and weighs 6.9 ounces.  Touchmarked on the back with "ROSELEAF by BENEDICT", "BENEDICT PLATE" and the pattern number #2414.
