The Platters are oval in form with a raised rim decorated with bold gadrooning interspersed with double Rococo shells flanked by acanthus leaves and anthemion motifs. The borders are engraved on each side with a set of contemporary Arms Accole, surrounded by a cartouche of pluming scrolls. The platters are of an exceptional weight and are very well marked on the reverse.

Work by Rundell is scarce, although he was one of the finest silversmiths, after Paul Storr, working at this period. He was appointed jeweller and silversmith to the King in 1797 and by the time of his death, in 1827, he left a fortune of £ 1.25 million pounds, one of the largest estates ever proved. George IV held him in very high regard and he was charged with making the Crown Jewels for his Coronation in 1821. Rundell left his fortune to his nephew Joseph Nield who left his entire, and much increased, fortune to Queen Victoria !
