A handsome antique sterling silver serving platter of oval form with a broad gadroon edge. Large size and very heavy quality. On the top edge there is a hand engraved crest of a crown over a lion. This platter was originally one piece of a very large table service and is numbered 29 on the reverse side. Weight 3476 grams, 111.7 troy ounces. Top measures 61 x 43 cms. London 1811. Maker Henry Nutting.
This lovely dish is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. The English silver hallmarks are clear and easy to read. The engraved crest has a little wear. This platter has been used for cutting meat and the centre is scratched, so please let us know if you would like to have this polished before shipping.
Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
The Lion on chapeau crest under a duke coronet is for Lord Charles Lennox, 4th Duke of Richmond, 4th Duke of Lennox, 4th Duke of Aubigny,
