18th Century Chinese Export Armorial Plate – Hope of Craighall

18th Century Chinese Export Armorial Plate – Hope of Craighall


Chinese export armorial plate, circa 1795.

The rim is decorated in a blue diaper and spearhead pattern, as is the cavetto.


The center is decorated with a central coat of arms, crest, and motto of the Hope family. Below the arms is the badge of a Baronet.


The supporters are a pair of women holding anchors.


The arms, crest, and motto are those of the Hope family. According to Howard, it is likely that this service was made for Sir Thomas Hope.

Faint hairline and some surface wear; otherwise in excellent condition consistent with age and usage.
