I have been looking at your warming pans.
Usually one would not give much consideration to these items and the standard Victorian ones (as used by my dad when I was very young) have become almost impossible to sell with prices having fallen in the past 20 years from about £75 to less tahn £20.
Still that is not the case here.
Of course the very considerable age of your has resulted in much of the decorative detail being polished away.
The CR may well indicate Carolean origin.
We are talking mid to late 17th century if they are original and that makes for an entirely more buoyant market.
The loss of original decoration would be acceptable and if genuine then they are quite rare items.
They need to be assessed first hand by an expert local to you who will not charge for their advice.
Tell me where you are in the country and let's see if I can help with arranging something. Best wishes. Greg
