ANTIQUE SILVER ARGYLLS

The Argyll was invented in the 18th Century for, and named after, the 5th Duke of Argyll John Campbell and his Wife Elizabeth Gunning, the Duchess of Argyll and Baroness Hamilton of Hameldon. The Duke was often complaining that his gravy went cold at the table, so this ingenious item was created specifically for the purpose of keeping it warm.
