The Dish is rectangular in form with an everted reeded rim. The domed cover terminates in a reeded Classical urn finial and is engraved with a contemporary Armorial, surrounded by a plume cartouche, with a Crest above and Motto below. The Arms are those of the Richdale family. This piece, unusually, has six interior pans which are each engraved with a contemporary Crest and are also fully marked. The dish has a fruitwood side handle and is in quite excellent condition. The bottom of the dish has a hot water jacket which can be filled by unscrewing the handle. The chain on the finial can be attached to the finial, so that the cover remains upright, when serving.
The small pans would have contained food and entrees and the heat from the water jacket would have kept them hot from below. These are particularly rare items.

Length: 8.5 inches.
Width: 6.75 inches.
Height, to the top of the finial: 3.75 inches.
Weight: 50oz.
