A very fine & unusual George IV Serving Dish made in London in 1828 by Robert Garrard - The Crown Jewellers.


The Dish is of a very unusual shaped oval form with a raised ribbed edge. The quality and weight is outstanding as one would expect from this famous Royal maker. The reverse is very well marked, as well as being stamped with GARRARDS, PANTON STREET, LONDON.

The border is engraved with a contemporary Crest below the Coronet of a Marquess. The Crest is that as used by Charles Ingoldsby Paulet, 13th Marquess of Winchester 1765-1843. He was educated at Eton and Clare College, Cambridge. After graduating, he served with the 1st regiment of Foot Guards from 1784-86 and sat as M.P for Truro 1792-96.

The Marquess of Winchester is the Premier Marquess of England and in 1812, Lord Winchester became Groom of the Stole to George III and continued as such under George IV and up until the death of William IV in 1837. When Queen Victoria came to the throne in the same year, the office was abolished and he was thus the last Groom of the Stole to a Sovereign.
