The Arms of Reid of Barra, Aberdeenshire, created baronets in 1703, but now extinct. The service was probably made for A. Reid, a supercargo on the Grafton at Canton in 1734, and senior supercargo on the Normanton in 1736. The arms are as those impaled by Lambton, ancestors of the Earls of Durham, in a service made about 1735 and another Lambton service of that date. From the style of painting the Lambton impaling Reid and this service were probably made for brother and sister.
Faint hairline crack inside footrim, barely visible
