A GEORGE III SILVER ENTREE-DISH
MARK OF PAUL STORR, LONDON, 1817
Shaped oblong with a foliage and shell heightened gadrooned border, engraved with a coat-of-arms below a duke's coronet, marked underneath, further struck with number '291'
11 in. (28 cm.) wide
32 oz. 10 dwt. (1,012 gr.)
The arms are those of Powlett, almost certainly for William John Frederick Powlett, later Vane, later 3rd Duke of Cleveland of the second creation (1792-1864), he took the name of Powlett in lieu of Vane by Royal license in 1813 under the terms of the will of his maternal grandmother, the dowager Duchess of Bolton (d.1809). Presumably the duke's coronet was later engraved after his brothers death in 1864.
