The Dish Cross is of typical "X" form with sliding supports. The circular base of each support is decorated with beading. The top section of the support, where the dish would be placed, is also pierced with a beautiful flower head and has a beaded surround. The section where the supports slide along the arms is pierced with trellis work and the arms each terminate in a stylised flower head. The central baluster burner would have contained the wick and paraffin and has a detachable cover which is decorated with beading and reeded bands. The Dish Cross is in excellent condition and is of a beautiful design. This piece is very well marked on the burner, its cover and each of the arms. It is unusual to find a Dish Cross from the Hennell workshops as they made very few there.
