The Dishes are of circular form with a gadrooned rim and oval drop ring carrying handles. The stepped domed pull off covers terminate in a cast reed and branch handle. The cover is engraved with a contemporary Armorial, with Motto below and the Coronet of an Earl above. The Arms are flanked, on each side, by supporters and the base is engraved with a double Crest. The Dishes are well marked and are in excellent condition.

The Arms are those of Toler, quartering Graham, with an inescutcheon of pretense for Brabazon, for Hector John Toler, later by Royal Licence 1825, Graham-Toler, 2nd Earl of Norbury. He succeeded his father in 1831.

He was born in 1781 and married, in 1808, the considerably wealthy heiress Elizabeth Brabazon, who brought with her a country estate in county Leitrim, Mayo & Sligo. She was the only child of William Brabazon Esq., who had married Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of John Phibbs, from whom the estates descended. Lord Norbury was shot dead on 2nd January, 1839, it is claimed by his butler. It is thought his butler may have been associated with the Ribbonmen. This took place in the grounds of his house Durrow Abbey in Tullamore, King's County, now County Offaly. He was succeeded by his eldest surviving son.

Height: 6 inches, 15cm.
Diameter: 9 inches, 22.5cm.
Weight: 102oz the pair.
