Here's a large handsome well made antique food dome by Mappin Webb & Co - later Mappin & Webb. It is Sheffield Silver plate and measures 13 3/4" long and 10 3/4" wide and 7" high to the top on the handle. It has a beautifully engraved monogram on the side with the initial "F. P." It has wonderful subtle lines and a nice border around the bottom edge. The condition very good with only slight wear consistent with its age. The silver plate is in great shape too - the inside can be polished up a lot more.
Mappin & Webb has been a high quality firm for around 250 years. The company was called Mappin Webb & Company starting from 1864 to 1889. This piece dates from around 1875.
The dome is marked inside - Mappin Wells & Co Manufacturers and Sheffield Cornhill City and Oxford St. London.
It's a classic piece of elegance for the holiday table - and in fact a lot of fun to use!
