A George II second course dish, London 1725, makers mark of Paul de Lamerie. Circular and with gadrooned border, the rim engraved with a coat-of-arms on one side and slightly later with a crest below an earl's coronet on the other, marked underneath, further engraved with a number and scratchweight 'No 3 39:17' The arms are those of Mildmay quartering Fitzwalter with Schomberg on an escutcheon of pretence, for Benjamin Mildmay, 19th Baron Fitzwalter (1672-1756), created Earl Fitzwalter in 1730.
Mildmay's marriage at age 51 to Frederica, eldest daughter of Meinhardt, Duke of Schomberg, prompted Lady Mary Wortley Montagu to write to her sister that the bride-to-be was "...sunk in all the Joys of happy love notwithstanding she wants the use of her 2 hands by a Rheumatism, and he has an arm that he can't move. I wish I could send you the particulars of this Amour, which seems to me as curious as that between 2 oysters, and as well worth the serious Enquiry of the Naturalists" (B. Wees, English, Scottish and Irish Silver at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, New York, 1997, p. 153.)
