Consisting of five elements -- deep warming base, 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. 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. England, approximately 14-1/2 inches long by 8-1/2 inches wide and six inches high.
