The Arms are those of Callaghan of Ireland, impaling Ponsonby, as used by the Earl's of Bessborough. The cipher, below the Viscount's Coronet, are most probably those of the giver of the Salt Dishes.
The quality and design of these items is exceptional, as would be expected from these silversmiths. We have not seen this design before and it may well have been a special commission. The work of Boulton & Fothergill is particularly rare and highly desirable. Both Robert Adam & James Wyatt designed for their workshops.
