Antique set of 4 George IV silver entrée dishes

Product Description

A fine and imposing set of four George IV entrée dishes with covers by William Ker Reid, London 1829.

These extremely fine entrée dishes with coves are of an elaborate octofoil shape with the covers rising to a high dome. The rims of the dishes are cast and chaste with a bold and restrained rococo decoration incorporating foliage, flowers and scallop shells in a typical Regency manner. The tops on the covers are devised as a bold leaf and fruit design, heavily chased, with an entwined foliate branch of acanthus forming the actual handle.

Each of the lids is adorned with a finely engraved coat of arms with crest above while each of the dishes has an engraved crest. The arms are those of Broughton quartered with Tooke impaling Smethwick and the crest, of a sea dog, is also of the Broughton family. They most probably represent the arms of Peter Broughton of Tunstall Hall Shropshire and his wife Anna Ogilvy Smithwick who were married in 1818.

These dishes demonstrate the finest design and decorative motifs of the Regency period, demonstrating the height of taste and quality in English silver in the early 19th century. A comparable set of dishes, dated to 1834 by Paul Storr, arguably the finest silversmith of the 19th century, confirm this.

 

 

Set of Four William IV Paul Storr (1771-1844) Sterling Silver Covered Entrée Dishes dated 1834

 

William Ker Reid (1737-1868) inherited the silversmith business from his father Christian Ker Reid who founded the business in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1778. William Ker Reid established a business in London in 1812, entering in partnership with Joseph Craddock at 67 Leather Lane. He obtained his freedom of the Goldsmiths Company by Redemption in 1814 and was made a Liveryman in 1818. In

1825, William Ker Reid became active on his own account at 5 Bream's Buildings, Chancery Lane, London.

The success of the business and its reputation for producing quality wears is born out by its inclusion as an exhibitor at the Great Exhibition of 1851 and the 1862 International exhibition.

These dishes ably demonstrate the firms quality at a time when English silver was at a peak of design and sumptuousness following the defeat of Napoleon and the growing wealth of Great Britain.
