The tray is broad rectangular in form with rounded corners. The rim is decorated with a cast and applied gadrooned border interspersed with Rococo shells, flanked by acanthus foliage. The quality carrying handles are modelled as double scrolls, decorated with acanthus leaves. The centre of the Tray is engraved with one of the finest Armorials, and cartouches, which we have seen over the years. The shield shaped Armorial, displays a raying shell above and is surrounded by pluming scrolls. The Crest is shown above and the Motto is below, engraved on a banner decorated with crossed branches. The Motto " Mutare Vel Timere Sperno" translates as " I scorn to change or fear." The Arms, Crest and Motto are those of the Barnes family, as granted to Richard Barnes, 1532-1587, during the reign of Elizabeth I. He held the prestigious position of Bishop of Carlisle. Considering the date of the Tray, they are most probably those of Sir Edward Barnes, 1776-1838, Lieutenant-General 1825, Governor of Ceylon 1824-31 and Member of Parliament for Sudbury 1837-38. The Tray is in excellent condition and is of a very heavy weight.
