The raised border is embellished with an impressive bright cut engraved crest of an arm in armour embowed, holding in the hand a scythe in bend dexter.
Each antique plate is ornamented with a fine and impressive gadroon decorated border to the rim.
The circular well of each plate is plain and unembellished.
The underside of each plate retains the silversmith’s centre punch mark.
These exceptional Georgian plates were crafted by one of the most famous and revered London silversmiths Paul Storr.
The surface of each plate has a fine colour and patination*.
* Patination or Patina is a subtle colouration or tarnish which forms on the surface of some metals, produced by oxidation or other chemical processes. A good patina proffers an aesthetically pleasing look.
