A large antique electroplated entree dish and cover bearing the marks which we believe to be for Hawksworth Eyre and Co (1798 to c1914). The base also bears the pattern number of 12472.
The dish and cover have been cleaned, but might benefit from further, more expert, cleaning. There is a little tarnishing which we have tried to show in the photographs. There are also a small number of very minor dinks, commensurate with age and use. Otherwise, the dish and cover are structurally sound.
The dish measures approximately 13in by about 7.75in at the outer rim (internal measures approximately 11.375in by about 6.25in) and the dish and cover (the cover fits snugly into the dish) stand just under 6in high to the top of the handle on the lid. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the earlier part of last century, or a little before that. Weighs nearly 1.5kg.
