These exceptional antique George IV sterling silver soup bowls / plates have a plain circular form.

The raised borders of these Paul Storr soup bowls are embellished with an exceptionally crisp and impressive contemporary engraved coat of arms encircled with the motto of the

Baronetage of Nova Scotia: 'Fax Mentis Honestæ Gloria' - Glory is the light of a noble mind and surmounted with a Lord of Parliament's coronet, all above the motto 'Ryde Through'*.

The opposing side of the aforementioned plateaued border is embellished with a bright cut engraved simplified floral design.

Each antique silver bowl is ornamented with an exceptional cast and applied gadroon decorated shaped border to the rim accented with large scrolling leaf designs.

The deep circular well of each soup bowl is plain and unembellished.

The underside of each soup bowl retains the silversmith's original centre punch mark.

* This coat of arms pertains to John Hamilton of Broomhall, the 1st Lord Belhaven and Stenton.
