The crest is that of Cholmondeley for George Horatio, 2nd Marquess of Cholmondeley P.C. of Cholmondeley Castle, Malpas, Cheshire and Houghton Hall, Norfolk, who succeeded his mother as joint hereditary Grand Chamberlain of England. He was born 16 January 1792 and married, as his second wife in 1830, Lady Susan Somerset (d. 1886), 4th daughter of Henry Charles, 6th Duke of Beaufort. He died on 8 May 1870 without issue, the title passing to his brother William Henry Hugh, 3rd Marquess.

Another argyle, Paul Storr, London, 1820, was in The Lillian and Morrie Moss Collection of Paul Storr Silver, cat. p.83, pl. 22. A silver coffee pot, Paul Storr, London, 1826, of similar style to the present argyle is illustrated in the Folger Coffee Company Collection of Antique English Silver Coffee Pots.

Argyles were popular from the middle of the 18th century but become rare by the time the current example was made, although occasional examples appear in silver and Sheffield plate and electroplate throughout the century. This example with its double skinned body is of the more complex type, the others having a heating rod compartment, or a base compartment for hot water.
