Old Sheffield Plate*.
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.
This attractive wine cooler is in very good condition. All original and complete with top and sleeve. It has the original old Sheffield plate finish (very slight traces of copper showing).
