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.
These attractive antique bottle holders are in very good condition. The interior sleeves and covers are original. The mounts are crisp. There is no plate wear. The coolers have been resilvered.
