    These silver pieces will be at Weldon’s stand when Hibernian Antique Fairs visit Acton’s Hotel in Kinsale on Sunday, August 28.   The Irish silver dish ring was made in Dublin in 1939 by Weirs. Dish rings were designed for hot plates, and were the forerunner of the table mat.  In Ireland they are sometimes called potato rings.  When a liner was added, as in this example, they were used for serving potatoes.
    The set of nine dessert spoons are by the Cork maker John Toleken whose workshop was at Grand Parade. He was registered with the Goldsmiths’ Company of Dublin in 1798 and is thought to have been working in the trade as late as 1836.  These dessert spoons are asking 1,250 euro.
