This antique York silver meat platter is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. The cast gadroon decoration is very sharp and the bright cut engraved crest is very crisp. There are some surface knife scratches to the well of the platter, in keeping with the age and purpose; these marks can be softened by a silversmith if required. Full York hallmarks struck to the underside of the rim of the platter are all very clear.
