Though lacking the Slater crest this plate is nearly identical to a dinner service made for the Slaters in the 1780s, parts of which were sold Christie's London, 8 June 2004, after descending in the family. Fifteen different scenes were identified in that service, all idealized views of the typical English 18th century landscape. By family tradition the scenes had been sketched by Elizabeth Jackson Slater, who married Gilbert Slater in 1784. See D.S. Howard, op. cit., vol. I, p. 994 and vol. II, p. 213.
