An Antique George III Sterling silver dinner plate which is circular in shape with wavy edges, a plain body, a lovely ribbon-tied reeded border decorated with grapes and leaves and resting on a flat base. This wonderful plate is from the Lonsdale service by Paul Storr and was probably sold by Rundell, Bridge and Rundell. There is a crest at the top of the body with the motto of the Order of the Garter with an Earl’s coronet below. It would make a useful addition to a Paul Storr collection and it remains in excellent condition. It weighs 25.8 troy ounces (804 grams).
The crest is that of Sir William Lowther who became the 1st Earl of Lonsdale in 1807. He was also made a member of the Order of the Garter in the same year. He lived from 1757 to 1844.
Complimentary postage is included within the price.
