A three section, extendable, sterling silver table plateau. Made in Belgium by the one of the premier silversmiths, Delheid Freres. The plateau is actually the highest grade of silver, being of 950 standard, which is higher than the 925 sterling standard. Made in Brussels, Belgium, circa 1900. Each section with the “A” assay mark for Belgium and 950 for the high standard. The D with the Serpent above is the mark for Delheid Freres. The three sections are 45″ long and for a larger table they can be spaced further apart. The Brussels house Delheid, considered the second best Belgian silversmiths, was founded circa 1828 by Michel Delheid (1802-1872). In the period 1829-1838 he worked at the Rue Des Minimes in Brussels. In 1842 he registered his maker’s mark, and moved to Nieuwlandstraat. In 1862 two of his sons, Edmond-Joseph and Alphonse-Jules-Jean-Baptiste, gave the company its final name Delheid Frères. They registered the capital D under a serpent, makers mark. The company again moved circa 1898 to Artesiëstraat ; finally in 1897, a store on Augustijnenstraat was opened. The company increased production in the early 20th century, and they were still silversmithing up until late 1970s. Silver items made by Delheid Freres can be seen at the Silver Museum housed in the castle Sterckshof in Deurne, Antwerp.
