This is a silver plated covered dish made by Harrod's (UK) circa 1910. They became Harrod's Ltd in 1889,

but the styling dates this a bit later to the 1900 to 1910 time period.

The A1 is the mark for a silver plated item, A1 being the quality of the plating used.

This is pattern number 3027, a covered server used for keeping food warm.

The value of this piece is £25.
