24" wide x 14' 3/16" length x 3 3/8" high

Circa 1840

Created by a process perfected in the mid-18th century, silver plate, or the extremely strong and pliable fusion of silver and copper, is very rare today. Gradually replaced by electroplating, Sheffield plate displays a unique brilliance, giving off a distinct blue cast, unmatched by either sterling or electroplated silver.
