Catalogue Note

The crest may be that of Finch, Earl of Winchelsea.

The maker's mark IP with pellet between in oval most closely resembles the mark of John Plimmer, who is listed as a smallworker. A similar mark is also listed in Grimwade as no. 3670 in the unregistered marks with a doubtful attribution to John Parker II. Neither is likely to be the maker of these dishes, whereas Preedy, who is known to have made ambassadorial silver, seems a more likely candidate.
