Available for purchase is this very large specimen of Sheffield plate. The large deep basket is elevated on a raised base, and has wonderful simplistic reeded edges typical of the era. The dish is complimented with a large high set handle.
Sheffield plate was introduced in 1743 by plating layers of silver and copper. This piece looks to date early 1800s from the design. Evidence of the copper bleeding through inside the dish can be seen, helping to authenticate the age of the piece.
True Sheffield plate is becoming harder to find, while simultaneously becoming more of a collectable interest - some even out valuing their solid silver counterparts.
No makers mark to the underside
Measures 30cm long x 25cm wide x 12cm high on the dish ends, 23cm high to the raised handle
