Pair Sheffield Plate Serving Dishes

These elegant covered serving dishes have an unusual, elegant shape, with incurved sides and flattened ball feet. Covers have flattened oval ring handles.

The lid is engraved with what I believe is a coronet for an earl, and monogram "CA"? ; the bottoms are engraved with a crest with motto.

The motto is believed to be for the Finch family: Aperto vivere voto (To live without a wish concealed) - sorry, after so many years out of school, i cannot guarantee the Latin translation). Whether you are of the nobility or not, these are a lovely set of dishes from the early nineteenth century.

No manufacturer's mark.

Size: Approximately 7.75" by 9.25"; 4.75" total height.

Condition: Excellent. Some small areas showing copper base. There are identical X marks on bottoms; I believe these to be something caused during manufacture.

Estate silver will be in used condition, but I will take care to note any defects or condition problems arising from heavy use or abuse.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
