Antique Silver ARGYLLS description:

A serving pot designed to keep gravy or sauce hot.

Antique Silver ARGYLLS history:

There are very few examples before 1760 and they seem to have lost favour in the 1830s.

Antique Silver ARGYLLS design:

The vast majority were in the form of a small coffee pot either straight-sided cylindrical or with a baluster. Believed to have been invented by the Duke of Argyll, they were designed to keep gravy hot by means of a hot water jacket. The latter has a small hole with a flap cover to allow the filling of hot water.

Antique Silver ARGYLLS collectors note:

The condition and originality of the Argyll is the most important factor. They are often damaged and it is very difficult for a silversmith to repair properly due to the nature of the water jacket. Be very careful of Argylls with an internal hot water holder that has been added at a later date. This may be an altered coffee pot. They must also have good clear hallmarks, crisp detail, and well-fitting tight hinges.
