Beautiful set of two English Antique C.1880 Silver Plate Spoon Warmers. Hall marked to both. Both come from the well known Gift & Jewlery store in London, Mappin & Webb.
Very good condition to the Silver Plate, original patina and recently polished, consistent with age and use.

Food served with a cold spoon may cool down too quickly for some tastes. Even worse, a dish with rich, fatty gravy may congeal unappealingly on its way to your plate. A decorative container filled with hot water to keep serving spoons and sauce ladles warm seemed like the perfect solution in Victorian England. The earliest spoon warmers date from the 1860s. less
