The Dishes are of a shaped circular form with a raised gadrooned rim interspersed with foliate motifs. The border is engraved with an Armorial, with Motto below, all surrounded by a scrolling plume cartouche. The Arms and Motto are those of Beriah Botfield and his wife Isabella, daughter of Sir Baldwin Leighton, 8th Baronet. His principal Seat was Norton Hall, Northamptonshire, and a painting circa 1820 of the Hall is shown. Botfield was educated at Harrow and Christ Church Oxford and entered Parliament, as M.P. for Ludlow. In early life he studied botany and geology, however afterwards became a celebrated bibliographer, being a member of a large number of literary and scientific societies.

Very few Second Course Dishes are known from Scotland and this is the first we have offered. Both are in excellent condition and are well marked.

Diameter: 10.75 inches, 26.88cm
Weight: 45oz, the pair.
