An extremely fine and beautiful George III Dish Cross made in London in 1784 by William Plummer.


The Dish Cross is of the typical X form with sliding supports. The circular base of each support is pierced with tear drop motifs and has a beaded edge. The top section of the support, where the dish would have been placed, is also pierced with a beautiful foliate design and also has a beaded surround. The section, where the supports slide along the arms, is pierced with trellis work and the arms each terminate in a stylised flower head. The central baluster burner, which would have contained the wick and paraffin, has a detachable cover which is decorated with beading and reeded bands and which is engraved with a contemporary Crest. The Dish Cross is in excellent condition and is of a beautiful design. This piece is very well marked on the burner, its cover, and each of the arms and feet. William Plummer made some of the finest Dish Crosses at this date and this piece is a very fine example of his work.
