Literature. The earliest surviving silver dish rings date from the end of the 17th century and are probably derived from the brazier. Of circular form, they were used to support hot plates or bowls of food. Their prime function was to protected the dining table or sideboard from heat damage however their attractive designs add an ornamental element to the table decoration. Dish rings were usually made in Ireland and thus came to be known as the ‘Irish Potato Ring’.
