Object Literature

Old Sheffield plate was a process used in Georgian times to make articles from a sheet of copper fused with a thin sheet of sterling silver. This process predates the silver plating done today (electroplating) which started in the 1840s. The majority of these silverwares were made in Sheffield, UK (hence the term Old Sheffield plate) which was a major UK centre for silver production.

Object Condition

This attractive antique wine cooler is in good condition with no repairs. The engraved crest and applied mounts are crisp. This buckett has been used and there is some copper showing on the crest and the highlights. It still has the original detachable top and liner.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
