Pair of Georgian Entree Dishes, 1828








Details

These are an outstanding pair of Georgian period silver entree dishes that were made by the important silversmith William Bateman.

 

Immediately noticeable upon picking them up is the extremely hefty weight - they weigh a remarkable combined 4.5kg or 147 troy ounces! Both dishes have their original covers to ensure food is served warm at the table and by removing the handles four serving platters become available. The applied decoration is wonderful and has the bonus of remaining super-crisp and the two handles are beautifully modelled.

 

Numbered as "3" and "4", these serving dishes were once part of a larger set and the elaborate coat-of-arms are further evidence of their rich heritage. The armorials are for the McCleod Clan and have the motto "Hold Fast" above and the Latin motto "Hic Murus Aheneus" (translates to "This is a Brazen Wall"). 

 

These entree dishes have some typical scratching (better than the majority) to the insides and remain in excellent condition.
