Over 14 feet in length, this remarkable Sheffield silver plate plateau is epic in size and outstanding in workmanship. Perfect for use as one large service or as five individual pieces, the plateau is elevated on scrolled sunflower feet. The mirrored surface is framed by a marvelous Rococo floral border, as a running band of floral Vitruvian decoration encircles the perfectly matched individual sections. Large pieces of Sheffield silver-plate, especially those of such superior form, are extremely rare and highly sought by collectors. Both versatile and commanding, this plateau makes a stately and regal presentation. Excellent condition. 24" wide x 14' 3/16" length x 3 3/8" high Circa 1840 Created by a process perfected in the mid-18th century, silver plate, or the extremely strong and pliable fusion of silver and copper, is very rare today. Gradually replaced by electroplating, Sheffield plate displays a unique brilliance, giving off a distinct blue cast, unmatched by either sterling or electroplated silver.
