A handsome antique carving plate with hot water jacket and a sunken well for collecting juices. Good large size. Lovely plain design with gadroon and shell border and decorative side handles and feet. There is a hand engraved armorial to both sides. Spread 64 cms. Underneath the handles there are two hot water fillers with screw caps. Outside measurements - length 59 cms, width 47 cms. Inner rim measurements – length 47.5 cms, width 36 cms. Height 9 cms. Old Sheffield Plate*. Circa 1830.
This useful antique serving dish is in good useable condition with no restoration. The engraving is crisp. The plate is in good order with no plate loss and just has some minor scratching and a few small black spots. This dish has obviously been used over the years and shows some signs of wear:
the decorative applied mounts are a bit flat in some places
there is a small patch of verdigree underneath (see bottom photo)
there are a few dents underneath and a couple of very minor dents on top

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.
*Old Sheffield plate was a process used in Georgian times to make articles from a sheet of copper fused with a thin sheet of sterling silver. This process predates the silver plating done today (electroplating) which started in the 1840s. The majority of these silverwares were made in Sheffield, UK (hence the term Old Sheffield plate) which was a major UK centre for silver production.
