I think that it was a celery dish-the Victorians were really into having a certain dish for every single thing... It looks like it makes the nicest-looking banana split dish that I've ever seen!
This link shows the celery dishes.

Thanks for the site. I still did not find the one like I have. But I am sure you are right about it being a celery dish. I am getting a good use out of it. My patient gets a banana split at least once a week from it. LOL It was worth the money I paid for it.

LOL My patient gets one at least once a week. She eats every bite too. She will look at it and say I dont think I can eat all of that but she always does.

It sounds so yummy, and my DMother promised me that everything that was served in crystal tasted better☺

DMother was right - it does always taste better served on the crystal or with the sterling...
