Antebellum Pewter Warming Plate
Click on an image to enlarge
Pewter warming plates were quite popular with Civil War officers in the early days of the war. Filled with boiling water they would keep a plate of food warm in the coldest conditions. This one is particularly nice for size (9 1/2") and condition (fine uncleaned and undamaged.) Only several minor dents and nice patina. It is well marked by the maker James Dixon & Sons Sheffield (England.) It dates from the 1850s and would be a great addition to a display of an officer s winter camp scene or mess gear collection. Typical of the sort of superfluous and eclectic material from the innocent early days of the war!
