Note:

 

Peter Waldron, Antique British Silver: “Dish crosses were a development from the much earlier

braziers (which are so rare that they do not fall within the scope of this book…” ).

Old London Silver (Montague) relates their onset in English silver at the time of Queen Anne (1702-14), 

using hot coals for heating, with a receptacle at the bottom to receive the ashes.  They were usually

pierced for ventilation, and raised on short legs to keep the heat from the table. They were fitted

with rising dish supports. 

 

Condition: Very good, especially for age and usage; good marks (date, leopard and maker’s);

passant pierced through; no breaks to piercing; slightly out of level; a silver repair to two raised scroll supports;

silver support to the join of three legs to base of brazier
