Great Quality Antique Silver Plate Argyle Hot Gravy Boat Whicker Old Sheffield :
This superb antique Argyle stands 165mm (6.5'') high x 100mm (4'') across the base and weighs 510 grams. It is unmarked but dates to the 1800's and was invented to keep the gray warm on the table with a built in hot water container (filler shown in photo 5) below the gravy and a cover and spout to help retain the heat complete with a woven whicker handle. It is in superb condition with no damage or restoration and the original planishing marks are just visible and the tinned inside is also in good condition. A very unusual piece of usable period table ware most likely produced in Sheffield.
International buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C. Postage outside the United Kingdom is at cost please contact me for a quote. Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer. If the item is listed as " Signed for " on the postage then obviously it is already included. If you have any questions please do contact me. All our items are extremely well packed to save them from damage in transit. If you are not happy with this article based on the information I have provided I will always happily refund minus the cost of any postage. All purchases must be piad for within 3 days of the end of the sale unless agreed otherwise.
