Elaborate Sheffield Double Entree Dish
Consisting of five elements -- deep base for hot water with pewter splash guard, primary dish, cover and detachable finial this impressive covered entree dish converts into two service dishes when required. The mechanically applied silver plate is original and shows the wear common to well-cared-for Sheffield plate. It has never been electroplated, as have been so many of these early pieces. The applied cast sterling details and overlapping rims are in excellent condition. Sterling panels for engraving are inset on either side of the cover. Hallmarked with the hand symbol of J. Watson & Son, circa 1830.
