The Dishes are of a 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 and both the base and cover are engraved with a contemporary Armorial. This is a most unusual design and the quality of design and production is exeptional. Richard Cooke's work always shows a high standard and he supplied the leading retailers, Rundell & Co and Jefferys, Jones and Gilbert with silverware.

The Arms are those of Johnes, impaling Johnes for Thomas Johnes of Hafodychtryd, co. Cardigan. He was born in 1748, eldest son of Thomas Johnes, M.P. He was educated in Shrewsbury, at Eton, Edinburgh University and M.A. Jesus College, Oxford, 1783. He embarked on a Grand Tour 1768-69. In 1783 he married his cousin Jane, daughter of John Johnes Esq., of Dalaucothi, co. Carmarthen. He was M.P. for the county of Cardigan and subsequently, in 1780, he was elected to his father's seat for the county of Radnor. He was auditor of the King's Land Revenue in Wales 1781-1816 and was Sherif for the county of Cardigan until his death in 1816. He had a son and duaghter, both of whom predeceased him.

He was responsible for the development of the Hafod Estate, recognised as one of the finest examples of a Picturesque landscape in Europe. Engravings of the house and estate are shown, as well as one of Thomas Johnes by Stothard.

Height: 5.75 inches, 14.38cm
