The Lazy Susan supper dishis made of heavy copper with a commercial silver plate coating of 15+ microns. No expense has been spared and no corners have been cut - classic gadroon edging, full handles, hand polishing and the handles of the piece are made of solid wood. The piece is designed for many years of use and will instantly become an heirloom in your family. It has a hot water compartment to keep your dishes warm and a hidden valve for easy water release. A very clever removable handle on the covers of the four serving dishes allows you to turn the covers over and use them as additonal serving dishes with ease.
