By Wright, Charles (English, fl. 1757-1815)
This beautiful set of twelve silver dinner plates, produced in 1782 during the reign of George III, is by the renowned English silversmith Charles Wright.
This set contains twelve solid silver dinner plates. Each plate, almost circular in shape, is designed about a decagonal (ten-sided) scheme, with alternating points of concavity and convexity at each point of the decagon. The edge of each plate is gadrooned. The plates, produced by the esteemed maker Charles Wright of London in 1782, have been later engraved, each plate inscribed with a coronet and the crest of Baron Vavazor of Wisbeach of Cambridgeshire beneath his motto, ‘Tenebo’.
Each plate is stamped underside with fine, clear marks, including the mark of Charles Wright of London and the date mark for 1782.
