Summary/Abstract: Inv. No. 3339 in the collection of the National Archaeological Museum (Sofia) is a dish, or salver, made of parcel-gilt silver with chased relief decoration and an embedded enamelled roundel. Close parallels with other vessels of the same type show that this salver was produced in Portugal and dates from the second half of the fifteenth century. It is one of the earliest known examples of wild men imagery in Portuguese silverware.
