DESCRIPTION -- An as used onboard silver serving dish from the Anchor Line shipping company which is a very early design and the size is 10" (25cm) wide.
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Very Good

HISTORY -- The beginnings of Anchor Line Ltd can be seen in 1838 when two brothers, Nicol and Robert Handyside, established themselves in Glasgow, Scotland, as shipbrokers and merchants. They used chartered tonnage to trade with the Baltic and Russia. At that time Nicol was the Russian Consul in Glasgow. The business operated under the name N & R Handyside & Co, and in 1852 the name Anchor Line was used by them for the first time, but only as a by-line in an advertisement. Nevertheless, it was an indication of the intention of the Handysides to branch out into ship-owning on their own account. In the same year Thomas Henderson joined the business. He was one of four brothers from Pittenweem, Fife, Scotland, all master mariners.
