Extremely rare William III Britannia silver brandy pan London 1697 Alexander Roode
This extremely rare William III Britannia silver brandy pan was made in London in 1697 by Alexander Roode and measures 9 inches from the handle across by approx 4.5 inches at its widest and is 3 5/8 inches in dia across the top. It has a turned wooden handle to the side with a square terminal where it attaches to the bowl and this is marked with the lions head erased and it is also fully hallmarked to the side and has the engraved initials H over EM under the base . We can’t find any evidence of an earlier example so believe this must be one of the first brandy warming pans. A very rare piece weighing 12.95 ounces or 402 grams.
