A pair of George II silver meat dishes. Engraved with the crest of Roberts of Shropshire.
Surviving work from the partnership of Matthew Boulton and John Fothergill is rare, and pairs of meat dishes virtually unique. The tied reeded borders on these dishes are identical to those on Boulton & Fothergill's service for Mrs Elizabeth Montagu, the celebrated intellectual of the period, who was known as the 'Queen of the Bluestockings'.
