Antique English Silverplate Turkey Meat Dome Food Cover Sheffield Victorian~
~Direct from England~
This listing is for a gorgeous larger antique British silver-plate turkey or meat dome cover.
And here’s the story…this is one of TEN silver-plate domes that we recently purchased. They are from a hotel that was in NEWCASTLE, ENGLAND (northern England). The hotel has been closed since 1921, and just recently all the contents were sold, thus our good fortune in getting so many of these at one time!
~This one has a great shape with an additional lower rope trim that separates the ribbed top from the scooped lower AND a large ornate ivy handle~
Engraved with a beautiful crest/shield of standing lions and “paratus et fidelis”, Latin for
“READY & FAITHFUL”
D*S inside rectangular shields with an “L” underneath.
The hallmark seems to date it to 1835, old sheffield plate by "James Dixon & Sons".
Larger size, 8.5”H x 14” x 10.5”.
Ornately appointed and a fabulous addition to any home!! Of course it can be used as intended, but today’s designers and decorators are also frequently using them as accent pieces PARTICULARLY AS WALL HANGINGS, adding interest and details to your dining room or kitchen!
….note there are other domes available….each listed separately.
