Vintage Silverplate Harrods Soufflé Dish with Liner

Vintage Silverplate Harrods Soufflé Dish with Liner

$350.00

Sure to serve your fluffy and scrumptious soufflés in great fashion, we are pleased to have found this lovely Vintage Silverplate Soufflé Dish with Liner made exclusively for Harrod's department store in London.  The addition of the liner makes for much more impressive soufflés by allowing for the creation of a bain marie, or hot water bath in the lower dish.

With most soufflés, the water bath ensures an even heating throughout the cooking, resulting in a better rise that stays up longer. Soufflés cooked without the water bath in the same oven will fall much faster than the others.

Coming to us from the silver markets of England, this shining piece is a rare find for sure. With its shining silver presence and convenient side handles, this practical and handsome soufflé dish with liner promises to be ever at your service with its rich history and savory offerings.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 6 5/8" in diameter, 8 3/4" with handles, 3" deep.

Learn More About Harrods

Omnia Omnibus Ubique - All Things for All People, Everywhere.

Harrods.  It is much more than a department store or a magnificent building in the exclusive borough of Knightsbridge.  Harrods is a British institution, rich in history and romanticism.  

It all began in 1824 when the 25 year old Charles Henry Harrod began a "draper, mercer and haberdasher" business in central London.  By 1849, Mr. Harrod had moved his growing business to its current Knightsbridge location - which at the time was a small village just outside London.  Occupying only a single room, employing two assistants and a messenger boy, Mr. Harrod focused on the grocery business, specializing in teas.  In the years that followed, Harrod's son Charles Digby Harrod built the business into a thriving retail operation.  Harrods rapidly expanded, selling medicines, perfumes, stationery, along with fruit and vegetables.  By 1880, Harrods had acquired the adjoining buildings, and employed one hundred people.

The store's booming fortunes were reversed in early December 1883, when fire swept through the building, burning it to the ground. Remarkably, in view of this disaster, Charles Harrod fulfilled all of his commitments to his customers to make Christmas deliveries that year - and made a record profit in the process. As quickly as possible, a new building was built on the same site, and soon Harrods extended credit for the first time to its best customers, among them being Oscar Wilde, Charlie Chaplin, Noel Coward, Gertrude Lawrence, Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh, Sigmund Freud, A.A. Milne and many members of the British Royal Family.  Harrods - the beautiful store filled with fabulous goods and serving a well-heeled clientele was definitely "on the map".

Recognized for its celebrity-endorsed sales, its magnificent food hall and its signature green bags, Harrods is one of the world's largest and most famous department stores.  With over a million square feet of space, Harrods sells luxury and everyday items across seven floors and 330 departments.  Harrods once boasted that "anything you could think of was for sale".  While that may not be exactly true, it is likely the only place where one can purchase historic 18th-century dinner plates, exquisite caviar and a giant teddy bear.  Indeed, there is no place in the world quite like Harrods.
