The Salver stands on four cast scroll feet which was a design used by Paul De Lamerie. This piece is circular in form with a raised scalloped rim divided into twenty seven panels, each displaying Rococo diaper chasing. The flat surface is beautifully flat chased with Rococo shell and scroll designs, as well as scale work. The centre is finely engraved with a contemporary Armorial, with supporters either side, and the Coronet of an Earl above. The Arms are specifically those of Francis Stuart ( 1673-1739), 7th Earl of Moray ( 1730-39) and his second wife, married 1730, nee Jean Elphinstone, daughter of James, 4th Lord Balmerinoch. Their Seat was Danaway Castle, near Forres. The Dish is in excellecnt condition, with crisp marks and a good colour. This example displays many of the fine characteristics of the work of De Lamerie and the decoration is some of the finest we have seen on a piece of this nature. A similar example is illustrated in Investing in Silver by Eric Delieb.
