A very fine Souffle Dish, and silver liner, made in London in 1865 by William Hunter.


The Souffle Dish is circular in form, with deep sides which rise to an everted reeded rim. This example displays two naturalistic side handles, attached to the main body with foliate mouldings. The liner is plain in design with an everted rim. Both the liner and dish are engraved with an unusal contemporary Crest. Both pieces are in excellent condition. The Dish displays very fine original hammer marks from when it was raised, which is always a desirable original feature of production. The Souffle would have been cooked in the oven in the liner and then placed in the outer decorative dish when it was taken to be served at the table. A fine quality and rare piece !
