FINE & VERY HEAVY SILVER ELECTRO PLATE& OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE 4 PIECE WARMING DISH

HI , AND WELCOME TO THIS sale FOR A MOST WONDERFUL VICTORIAN WARMING DISH 'COMBINATION' PIECE OF BOTH SILVER ELECTRO PLATE & OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE.

A SIMPLY STUNNING & HEAVY QUALITY PIECE OF FINE VICTORIAN SILVERED TABLE WARE.

THERE ARE 4 X PIECES IN TOTAL THAT MAKE UP THIS MOST WONDERFUL WARMING DISH.

THE TOP HALF IS A CIRCULAR, 2 PIECE TUREEN OR ENTREE DISH FROM THE VICTORIAN PERIOD BY THE VERY FAMOUS SHEFFIELD SILVERSMITHS ' WILLIAM HUTTON & SONS '.

THIS FEATURES THE STUNNING 'BIRD FAMILY CREST', RICHLY ENGRAVED ONTO ONE SIDE OF THE LID. THERE IS ALSO A 'TWIST OFF' BRANCH SHAPED HANDLE ALLOWING FOR THE LID TO BE USED FOR SERVING TOO.

BOTH THE BASE & LID ARE FITTED WITH THICK, DEEP 'GADROONED' RIMS & ARE OF THE MOST STURDY, HEAVY QUALITY.

THE 2 PART BASE IS A WONDERFUL PIECE OF THE FINEST ' OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE ', AND IS A MARRIAGE WITH THE ABOVE MENTIONED TUREEN. ALTHOUGH I MUST SAY THEY WERE 'MADE FOR EACH OTHER', AS THEY SIT SO PERFECTLY TOGETHER.

THE 'TOP PLATE' LIFTS OFF TO REVEAL THE 'TINNED' INTERIOR, WHERE THE HOT WATER WOULD BE PLACED. TO THE OUTER DIAMETER OF THE TOP PLATE THERE IS A SOLID SILVER WIRE, TO CONCEAL THE 'JOIN LINE' THAT APPEARS ON ALL 'FUSED PLATE'.

IT STANDS PROUDLY UPON 4 VERY LARGE & HEFTY LEGS. THESE ARE AGAIN MADE FROM SOLID SILVER, THEN 'LEAD' FILLED. EACH IS OF SCROLL & ACANTHUS LEAF FORM, AND ALL 4 ARE SUPERB.

TO LIFT THIS SUBSTANTIAL PIECE REQUIRES SOME STURDY HANDLES, AND THIS DOES HAVE A SUPERB PAIR. AGAIN THESE ARE MADE OF SOLID SILVER, FILLED WITH LEAD. EACH IS CURVED & BEAUTIFULLY 'REEDED' AND JOINS THE BODY WITH A LARGE PAIR OF ACANTHUS LEAVES TO EACH.

TO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE BASE THE QUALITY REALLY DOES STAND OUT. AS I HOPE YOU WILL SEE FROM ALL OF THE PHOTOS, THE SILVER HAS AN AMAZING 'SHINE' & IS TRULY BEAUTIFUL.

THIS IS CERTAINLY A FABULOUS & SUBSTANTIAL ITEM, FROM THE MID VICTORIAN PERIOD, AND NO DOUBT FROM A LAVISH ESTATE. WITH A WONDERFUL ENGRAVED CREST TOO.

THIS IS OF A VERY MAJESTIC ' BIRD ' SAT UPON A BRANCH.

SORRY ABOUT THE REFLECTIONS IN THE TOP OF THE WARMING DISH, IT WAS A VERY DIFFICULT PIECE TO PHOTO, AS IT IS BOTH VERY ROUND & SHINEY. BUT IT IS A BEAUTIFUL PIECE.

CONDITION :

ALL PIECES ARE IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION.

NO DAMAGE OR REPAIRS AT ALL, ANYWHERE, WHICH IS LOVELY TO SEE.

IT HAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LUSTRE & SHINE, AND LOOKS FABULOUS.

THERE IS SOME PLATE WEAR TO THE INSIDE OF THE ELECTRO PLATED LID & BASE {OBVIOUSLY FROM GENERAL USE WHEN SERVING FOOD} AND THE NICKEL BASE CAN BEE SEEN. BUT THE OUTSIDE IS QUITE SUPERB, WITH ONLY THE FAINTEST OF MARKS.

THE OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE BASE IS WONDERFUL, AND DARE I SAY 'NEAR PERFECT' CONDITION.

SOME SLIGHT COPPER 'BLEEDING' ON THE OUTSIDE, AND SOME VERY SMALL MARKS TO TOP PLATE, BUT THIS IS ALL.

THE INSIDE {WHICH IS 'TINNED'} IS IN GREAT ORDER, THE UNDERSIDE IS WONDERFUL TOO. AS ARE ALL 4 LEGS & BOTH HANDLES. A TRULY MAGNIFICEINT PIECE.

AND WOULD BE BOTH EXCELLENT FOR DISPLAY & USE.

SIZE & WEIGHT :

THIS WARMING DISH MEASURES 32 CM [OVER A FOOT] WIDE FROM HANDLE TO HANDLE & HAS A DIAMETER OF 24.5 CM.

STANDS AT 17.5 CM TALL INCLUDING LID & HANDLE

WEIGHS A MASSIVE = 3490 GRAMS. NEARLY 3.5 KG'S. WONDERFUL & VERY HEAVY QUALITY.

MAKERSMARKS/ HALL MARKS :

  • SADLY NO MAKERS MARKS AT ALL ON THE OLD SHEFFIELD PLATED BASE, WHICH IS A SHAME ? HOWEVER, THERE IS NO DENYING ITS SUPERIOR QUALITY WHOEVER MADE THIS FINE PIECE.
  • UPPER TUREEN STAMPED :
  • W H & S - MAKERS MARK FOR WILLIAM HUTTON & SONS OF SHEFFIELD
  • B P IN GOTHIC SCRIPT - EARLY ELECTRO PLATE MARK {BRITISH PLATE}
  • HANDLE, HANDLE SOCKET, LID & BASE ALL HAVE A LETTER 'X' UPON THEM

PLEASE VIEW ALL PHOTOS SO THAT YOU CAN FULLY APPREICIATE WHAT A SIMPLY STUNNING VICTORIAN WATER JACKET WARMING DISH THIS IS.
