Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

These covers are an Irish specialty, probably intended as covers for porcelain pot pourri bowls. In Irish Georgian Silver, Douglas Bennett illustrates examples (without bases), with the comment "Few of these dish covers have survived and those that appear to have been made between 1750 and 1775" (p. 125, fig. 32).
