A very fine pair of George III Serving Dishes made in London in 1791 by James Young.


The Dishes are of an unusual small oval form, with a raised rim decorated with gadrooning. Each side of the border is engraved with a contemporary Armorial with Motto below and the Coronet of a Baron above. The Arms are flanked, on each side, by lion supporters. The Dishes are very well marked and engraved with their original scratch weights. They are also numbered 12 and 13 and must have come from a very large set. James Young was an exceptionally fine silversmith and the unusual size of the dishes would lend themselves for a number of uses in the dining room, or for serving canapes.

Length: 13 inches, 32.5 cm.

Width: 9 inches, 22.5cm.

Weight: 55oz, the pair.
