This truly remarkable plate is crafted entirely in ivory, and features exceptionally intricate carved details all over. The plate is of circular shape, featuring a lobed rim with ten panels, carved with foliage, leaves, flowers, doves, cherubs and grotesques. The circular interior of the plate features a central acanthus leaf roundel, which is bordered with bands of delicate foliate and geometric carvings.

The plate was crafted in Dieppe, a town in northern France which is celebrated for its creation of many fine works in ivory. Frequent trade developed between Dieppe and Guinea in the late 17th Century, which meant that many exotic materials such as ivory were imported in abundance, and the town became an artistic centre as a result.
