GEORGE IV PEWTER CORONATION PLATES -- A very rare set of 12 pewterplates from George IV's coronation in 1820. Each plate is 9.75" indiameter and features the George IV cypher on the front rim. The reversecarries the touch mark of Thomas Dean Alderson who was responsible forcrafting a large portion of the coronation service. The plates are alsohallmarked "LONDON SUPERFINE." The plates are accompanied by a 1965dated letter from the shop of which the plates were acquired, The OldMetalcraft Shop, a shop owned by perhaps Britain's most well-known andrespected pewter dealer of the 20th century, John Casimir. The letter isaddressed to the family from whom we recently acquired the plates.Single plates can occasionally be found but a set of 12 is a truerarity.
