This George III silver Argyle pot by Hester Bateman is one of only four known examples that the famed silversmith ever crafted. Argyle pots such as this were first invented by John Campbell, the fifth Duke of Argyll, to keep gravies and sauces warm on the trip from the kitchen to the table. The design ingeniously incorporates a separate compartment to hold hot water, which will keep the gravy from congealing. In this example, Bateman's trademark beaded trim encircles the crown of the neoclassical design, which is completed by an expertly formed wooden handle and acorn finial.
