Pickle Dish

American China Manufactory (Bonnin and Morris), Philadelphia (1770–1772)
Pickle dishes held the pickled fruits and nuts served during the dessert course in colonial Philadelphia households. Unlike their more complex relative, the pickle stand, single pickle dishes could be easily moved about the table.
