* A silver argyle, otherwise known as a silver argyll, is a gravy warmer; an internal chamber filled with hot water keeps the gravy warm from kitchen to table. The original argyll/argyle was crafted in honour of the fifth Duke of Argyll, John Campbell (1723-1806) and his wife Elizabeth Gunning, Baroness Hamilton of Hameldon.
