Covered Dishes

Antique Silver Entree Dishes, Revolving Breakfast Dishes, Chafing Dishes and Venison Dishes are very practical covered serving dishes which can also be used to keep food warm.

The Antique Silver Entrée Dish with detachable cover can be used for a variety of foods and were made in many shapes. They were found from the mid 18th century and often have removable handles so that the lid could also be used as a dish. From the late 1700’s they were often made with heater bases.

Antique Silver Revolving Top Serving Dishes are versatile servers traditionally used to serve breakfast (eg. bacon, eggs, kedgeree etc) but nowadays are bought for many diverse reasons and particularly for serving muffins. They are normally electroplated silver.

Antique Silver Chafing Dishes have a similar function to the entrée dish but usually have a detachable handle.

The Antique Silver Venison Dish or Turkey Dish is a large covered carving dish with tree and well grooves to channel the meat juices into the gravy well. The domed covers often have large armorial engravings.
