1748 Antique Georgian Sterling Silver Second Course Dish and Meat Platter

About

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Georgian English sterling silver second course dish and meat platter; an addition to our dining silverware collection. This exceptional antique George II sterling silver second course dish has a plain circular rounded form and the meat platter has an oval shaped well, each with a sunken central well. The well of each piece is plain and unembellished. The raised borders of each dish is embellished with an exceptionally crisp and impressive later engraved coat of arms encircled with the motto of the Baronetage of Nova Scotia: 'Fax Mentis Honestæ Gloria' - Glory is the light of a noble mind and surmounted with a Lord of Parliament's coronet, all above the motto 'Ryde Through'*. The opposing side of the aforementioned plateaued border is embellished with a bright cut engraved scrolling foliate design. Each antique silver dish is ornamented with an exceptional cast and applied gadroon decorated shaped border to the rim accented with large scrolling leaf designs. The underside of these Georgian silver dishes bear the original scratch weights of 39.11 and 33.4 troy ounces (total weight 72.51 troy ounces); as to be expected the measured weight has subtly diminished in keeping with age to a total weight of 72.3 troy ounces. These fine and impressive antique second course dishes were crafted by the renowned London silversmith Frederick Kandler. These exceptional plates, crafted by Charles Frederick Kandler I**, bear the same heraldic markings and reflect the same design to the rim as the soup plates A9525. This coat of arms pertains to John Hamilton of Broomhall, the 1st Lord Belhaven and Stenton. At time of manufacture there was no extant baronetcy in the Hamilton family and it can be determined that this dish and platter set belonged to the Lord Belhaven and Stenton. Read this items heraldic identification report. Charles Frederick Kandler was a renowned silversmith, known primarily for his rococo influenced pieces. By some, he is regarded with the same reverence as the likes of Paul de Lamerie, to whom his work is often compared. Despite being so appreciated, his personal history remains an enigma.
