Grand Georgian Sheffield 20" Meat Dome with Footed Under Tray
An grand early 19th century Georgian Sheffield silver plated meat and under tray. Photos don't show the detail and scale of this magnificent piece!
The shapely dome has amazing detail. The handle is quite ornate in the form of a twisted vine with raised grapes and leaves. Dome measures 20" long by 15" wide and stands approx. 13" tall to the top of the handle. Quite a heavy piece at over 8 pounds not including the tray.
The tray has fancy scroll handles and feet with a water well. Gorgeous repousse rims. It measures 24" long by 18-1/2" wide by 3-1/2" tall. Including the dome the massive piece stands over 16" tall.
This piece was heavily tarnished and has polished up just beautifully with a gleaming bright patina! Some plate loss on the platter only. No noticeable dents or dings on the dome.
A truly extraordinary and elegant piece to grace your table or buffet!
