This is an exquisitely high-quality and rare antique set of four English Old Sheffield plate, (silver plate on copper) serving dishes with stands and covers, Circa 1815 in date.
These stunning shaped circular entree dishes each with circular warming stand with twin handles, shaped circular dishes and pull-off domed covers.
They are each engraved with the crest and the motto "Deo Favente", which translates as "With God's favour" —a motto that was originally proposed for the Great Seal of the United States.
They stand on four distinguished scroll and turned feet, are of the highest quality and are ready to grace your dining table.
A truly exquisite set 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.
