This is an exquisitely high-quality and rare antique pair of English Old Sheffield silver plated on copper entree dishes, each with lid and stand, circa 1820 in date, and bearing the early Old Sheffield makers mark of James Dixon & Sons.
These stunning shaped rectangular entree dishes feature impressive chased handles with splendid foliate decoration and a lid with embossed foliate decoration and an engraved Lion Rampant crest. The dishes sit on their original stands that are raised on scroll and foliage cast feet.
They are of the highest quality and are ready to grace your dining table.
A truly exquisite pair that would make a fine addition to any antique collection.
In excellent condition. As antique items, the pieces show signs of use commensurate with age, these minor condition issues are mentioned for accuracy and, as seen in the accompanying photographs, the dishes display beautifully.
