Antique, Soft Paste Ware, Gaudy Dutch, Warming Plate
The plate is attached to its original metal holder (water reservoir). The metal holder has a spout and its original cover (cap), which when removed, allowed one to add hot water to the reservoir which in turn kept the plate and its contents warm. Talk about eating 1st Class – Wow! The metal holder has two (2) handles to assist in carrying the hot warming plate to the table.
The mark on the bottom of the metal holder reads “Copper J.M.”. It is my opinion that there was pewter over the copper originally. The warming plate with the holder is 10 1/2” round X 1 ¾” deep, circa 1820’s.
The plate has a lot of crazing and discoloration which would be expected due to its age and the fact that it was certainly used a great deal over the years. There are no chips, cracks or hairlines. The lid to the spout is original and screws onto the spout.
