A very good quality William IV silver entree dish of shaped oval form. Embellished to the borders and lid with cast silver flower, leaf and fruit decoration. The twist off handle cast with similar motifs. The warming section of silver plate and an insert tray tray also of silver plate.
The dish itself clearly marked to both sections and the handle for Sheffield 1832 by SW and Co. for Samuel Walker and Company. The plate warming dish marked with the sign of a hand. There is a monogram of a gothic T to the lid. There is also the number 3 to all the parts.
This is a very grand and imposing dish of fine workmanship with no damage or repair. Good gauge silver throughout and with a good tight fitting handle and all parts sitting well together.
