Early Victorian period Old Sheffield Plate gorgeous entree dish with warming stand.
Circa 1849 wonderful Old Sheffield Plate 4 piece entree dish consisting of detachable handle, lid, base, and original warming stand with twin handles.
Made by Padley, Parkin and Co. of Sheffield. Mark used 1849-1855.
Old Sheffield Plate is very collectable and highly sought after. It was made by a process of sandwiching a sheet of copper between two sheets of silver, and is no longer economical to make. It preceded the process of electroplating.
This multi lobed elegantly shaped dish has cast and applied foliate and shell trim and branch handles and finial. It configures to one covered dish or two open fully decorated servers, once handle is removed. There is matching chasing to the interior edge of the lid, so that when turned over and used as an open server, it perfectly matches the base dish. Can be used with or without warming dish.
The whole stands on splayed cast feet.
Size-14 inches wide by 9.5 inches wide by 8 inches high.
Weight-3 kilos.
With lovely family armorial, and motto below in a furling banner, "Heart and Hand," this is a really lovely and functional antique serving dish. It will look beautiful on the dining table or sideboard, and will hold a good quantity of food.
There is some expected copper wear showing through in certain areas (considered very desirable), wear to some high spots of the decoration, and a few small bumps, scratches and marks from serving utensils.
All pieces are numbered with the same number, showing they have always been together.
In very good condition overall, with wonderful colour and patina, this is a truly elegant piece.
Last photo shows the dish next to a similar listing, which had also been offered. That piece has now sold, so there is just this entree dish and warmer available.
