A Late Victorian Silver Plated Food Dome or Cloche

A Late Victorian Silver Plated Food Dome or Cloche

SKU: RJ00408
£85.00Price

In the 18th and 19th centuries elaborate serving pieces were used in the dining rooms of wealthy households. Food would be brought from the kitchens by the staff and placed on buffet servers at the side of the room, a butler or footman would then serve the food from the serving pieces. These pieces would come in all manner of materials and styles including silver, silver plated and porcelain.

 

This is a medium sized, silver plated dome or cloche used to present food to the diners, it would also enable the food to stay warm when being brought from the kitchen. It has a detachable screwed handle with bead decoration which is echoed to the rim of the dome. These pieces would have been used in wealthy town or country houses or hotels.

 

The silver plate is in good condition with no wear, there is a faint mark around the centre of the body where it has been stored next to another dome and there is a very small crease to one side, but the overall appearance of the piece s very good.

 

Dimensions: length of 30cm x 24cm deep x 22cm high
