Description

A good set of four antique silver plates of plain design with traditional gadroon borders. Excellent quality and weight. Hand engraved to the edge with a coat of arms with crown and motto “Follow Me”.

Total weight 2988 grams, 96 troy ounces.

Diameter 28cm.

London 1794.

Maker Henry Green.

Sterling silver.

Marks. Each is stamped with a clear and fully matching set of English silver hallmarks to the underside. The plates are numbered 10,15,16 and 17 and will have come from a large solid silver dinner service. Each bears the original scratchweight in old fashioned script.

Arms. These plates were originally listed as bearing the armorial of the Marquis (later Duke) of Buckingham and Chandos. Later information leads us to think that these are the arms of the Glenorchy Campbells, later Earls of Breadalbane – see the image above with the motto “Follow Me”.

Literature. Antique Silver Dinner Plates and Meat Dishes. Dinner plates were usually made in dozens and larger quantities and often came as part of a suite of dishes including soup plates, oval serving plates and mazerines. These dishes very often came from grand houses and have finely executed coats of arms.

Condition

In very good condition
