A magnificent Antique Victorian Turkey Dome and Meat Platter. The Platter has a classic oval design with a traditional gadroon pattern border. The impressive Domed Meat Cover has a gadroon pattern on the lower rim and around the handle at the top of the Dome. Both the Dome and Platter each have a pair of matching engraved crests, one on each side.
The Meat Platter has a shaped sunken well allowing for the efficient collection of juices while the meat is carved and served.
The substantial size of the Dome and Platter are suitable for turkey, but equally so for serving venison or any other roast meats.

The Tray was made in 1859 in London by John Samuel Hunt and the Dome was made in 1894 by James Dixon and Son. The Dome and Tray are a perfect fit and have matched crests engraved.
