From the late 17th century large dinner services were made for the rich and noble dining tables. Originally comprising sets of dinner plates, chargers and serving dishes, later in the 18th century many other items were added including entrée dishes, tureens and sauce boats. From 1740 at least one dish with a detachable pierced strainer, known as a ‘mazarine’, would be supplied with each service; this type of dish was intended to hold such food as boiled fish.
