Godfrey 3
This wealth is reflected in the fact that four armorial services were recorded for the family. Given that these services took years to produce and may have included well over a hundred pieces, all meticulously decorated, the wealth of the owner is undeniable. Here is one piece of the service with a date of circa 1725. It is identical to the one illustrated above in 'Chinese Armorial Porcelain' and shows the full glory of this porcelain. Even though the piece is not in perfect condition, it bears its two hundred and seventy-odd years remarkably well. It is also pertinent to remember that porcelain was a luxury item in Europe at that time since it could only be produced in China. I plan to have the plate fully restored.
