A stunning and quite charming silver plated food dome or cover, with a wonderful and most unusual aesthetic engraved decoration in a floral and foliate design; with a couple of the most adorable birds (Swallows) incorporated. Take a good look at the photographs, it was hard to capture with the surface reflecting.
The underside of the handle is clearly marked for the top-notch English silversmith, Walker & Hall of Sheffield, this mark dates the piece to around 1890, late Victorian in era.
This example comes complete with a hanging ring for wall hanging.
Excellent condition, measuring 14 1/2" x 11" x 9" tall to top of handle.
