Antique Silverplate Biscuit Warmer

Antique Silverplate Biscuit Warmer

$595.00

From sardine forks to sandwich tongs to mustard spoons, meals in fine Victorian manors were orderly affairs, and each meal had its own bevy of proper utensils and serving dishes to ensure that this order and luxury were maintained. Whether it was a formal dinner gathering or an informal afternoon tea, proper customs and decorum needed to be maintained at all times. 

This lavish and ornate Antique Silverplate Biscuit Warmer is a perfect example of the refinement and decorum that reigned throughout the Victorian era. These gleaming silver contrivances were used to keep biscuits, bread rolls or buns warm at breakfast or for afternoon tea, but were also intended to impress guests and maintain the finest service possible. 

Crafted in the late 1800s by the Fenton Brothers Silversmiths of Sheffield, England, this unique piece is certainly a wonder of Victorian ingenuity. Traditionally these boxes were filled with biscuits and placed near the fire to keep them warm. Their pretty, pierced grills were designed to keep the biscuits in place and could be lifted to access the contents.

With a scalloped "clam shell" body, finely detailed, naturalistic finial and legs, and the intricate filigreed trays revealed upon opening, this antique biscuit warmer is truly a once in a lifetime find! It features working hinges and a rich, silvery luster that has stood the test of time, making it a fine addition to any antique silver collection. 


Strictly one of a kind and subject to prior sale. In good antique condition with light wear to the silverplate throughout. 9 3/4" H.  5 1/4" W.  8 1/2" L.
