This rare dish is rectangular in form, with deep base and a raised gadrooned rim and two side handles, also decorated with gadrooning. The slightly domed, pull off, cover terminates in a reed and crossed branch finial. The front of the cover is engraved with a shield shaped Armorial, with Crest above, issuing from a Mural Coronet. The base is also engraved with the same Crest. The dish is of the finest quality, as would be expected from this maker and is fully marked on the base and the cover. These dishes were used to serve bacon at the breakfast table and examples are scarce. They usually come from the workshops of John Edwards III. The Arms and Crest are those of the ancient Simpson family, with Seats at Mellor Lodge, County Derby and Foston Hall, County Yorkshire.

Length: 12.5 inches, 31.25cm.
