Georgian 42cm Meat Plate, 1805,







Details

With its satisfying hefty weight, this good-sized oval silver meat dish is typical of the high quality produced by the London partnership of Burwash & Sibley and represents the fashionable style of the early Regency period. It has a well-defined gadroon border and is engraved to the outer edge with an original coat-of arms. It would be ideal for use as a serving platter.

 

This meat dish is part of a suite of three different sized platters - as shown in the final photo - this plate is the smallest of the three (still 42cm long!) and to the right in the photo. All three remain available and can be purchased as a suite of two or three if required.

 

The coat-of-arms on this plate commemorates the marriage in Corrnwall between Captain Edward Collins and Mary Carlyon.

 

Captain Collins served with distinction in the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars whilst serving on important vessels such as the 74-gun Ganges and the 80 -gun Foudroyant. Among his commanding officers he served under Sir Thomas Pasley, Thomas Baker, Sir Thomas Graves, Sir Edward Buller and Rear-Admiral Charles Vinicombe Penrose. He took a conspicuous part in various operations around the north coast of Spain and was rewarded with his own command in the Gironde, onboard the Martial, in 1814.

 

A full professionally written report on these arms and naval career of Edward Collins will be available to the buyer of this plate.
