Note :

An argyll (argyle) is an insulated gravy pot, reputedly invented by the third Duke of Argyll of Scotland.

As there was a long journey to from the kitchen to the dining table,

some method – in this case a jacket of hot water, or sometimes a central conical heated insulator –

was ingeniously devised to keep the gravy warm.

The earliest recorded argyle dated to 1755, becoming more common after 1770.
