George III Sterling Silver Dish Cross by Robert Hennell II, London, 1790/91
This lovely antique dish cross is attached to the central heater base, which has its removable cover. The branches adjust for width, and the four feet slide along the arms to accommodate various size bowls and dishes. Applied at the ends of the branches are star or flower devices.
This uncommon sterling accessory is fully hallmarked underneath the heater. The removable cover is marked with the lion passant, as are the four legs and the arms. It measures 10.5 inches long, weighs 16.70 troy ounces and is in excellent antique condition.
