Argyle
A 1700's British gravy warmer, drum shaped like a tea pot or small coffee pot. The gravy was in a central cylinder connected to the spout, and surrounded by hot water. It was generally made of silver or other metals, but there are also pottery versions, notably in Wedgwood creamware. Argyles are recorded from about 1769, and are said to be named after the 4th Duke of Argyll.
