This is a stunning lot. A fine graduated set of William IV sterling silver meat dishes. Oval form with gadrooned borders. Previously owned by the Maitland* family, all pieces bearing the Maitland arms. Each dish has a hand engraved coat of arms on opposite edges. The dishes are mounted with a graduated set of matching Old Sheffield plated meat dish covers of plain oval outline with fluted borders and detachable handle. Each dome is hand engraved with a crest on one side and a coat of arms on the other. The complete set is contained in a fitted, iron-bound oak trunk. Excellent weight and gauge of silver. Weight of the four silver meat dishes 9858 grams, 317 troy ounces approx. The platters measure large - 61 x 44 cm, medium - 50 x 39 cm and 2 small platters 42 x 32.5 cm. Sterling silver platters made by John Bridge, London 1831. Old Sheffield plate domes marked for Matthew Boulton.
This set of graduated meat dishes is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. All completely matching and original. The sterling silver platters are stamped with a full set of English silver hallmarks for London 1831; they have minor scratching as can be expected, they have not been polished out. The Old Sheffield plated domes still retail a good silver colour, no copper showing. The hand engraving is sharp, all for the Maitland family. The wooden trunk is a bit shabby, the inner lining needs attention.
Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
