A Georgian sterling silver brandy warmer or sauce pan made by the famous English silversmith Robert Makepeace. It has a plain round tapering straight-sided body and sits on a collet foot with decorative incised rings.The pouring spout is at a right angle to the handle. The original handle is hand turned wood, probably walnut, and is attached by a pin to the short silver handle. The piece is stamped on the bottom with the lion passant (sterling), the crowned leopard (mark used for London 1478-1822), the date stamp S (1793) and R.M (the maker Robert Makepeace).
The pan plus handle measures 7 1/2" long. The pan is 3 5/8" diameter and stands 2 1/4". Height to the tip of the handle is 3 3/4". Weight is 120 grams. It is in quite good condition; there are a couple of teeny dings on the foot and the wood handle is a tad loose.
