Old Sheffield Plate.
Literature: Old Sheffield plate (circa 1770-1840) 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. Most articles made from Old Sheffield plate are unmarked. The date can be determined from the style and manufacture.
Signed/Inscribed: “Tace aut Face” motto of the Scott and Burges families. It means “Be Silent or Do”
The platter is in good condition and fully functional. There is no wear to the plated surface as it has been replated. The applied borders are still crisp and with good definition however there are a few faults to the outer edges which have been shown in the accompanying photos.
