An argyle is a gravy-warmer similar in shape to a covered coffee pot. The gravy is kept warm by various means. It is named after John Campbell (1723-1806), the fifth Duke of Argyll who hated the way that gravy arrived cold to the table from his kitchens at Inverary Castle during the cold Scottish winters. Argyles were produced up until the Victorian period in both silver and Sheffield plate. They are very rare and only a limited number now survive.
