Silverware underwent many changes during the reign of George III. During his first few years in power, George II-style silver was still in use. It was only after the American Revolution that silverware returned to simpler forms from the Queen Anne period. After 1790, the demand for intricate designs was back. The upcoming Doyle auction presents a set of George III sterling silver dinner plates. This set of 24 plates has a gadroon border and heraldic arms engraved along the rim.
The auction also features several carpets and tapestries. A 19th-century Tabriz carpet from Northwest Persia is particularly featured. This ivory and red carpet has a central scalloped pendant medallion and a leafy vine border. Also showcased are Heriz, Bidjar, Bakshaish, Senna, and Agra carpets along with Aubusson and Flemish Verdure tapestries. Regency furniture, bronze sculptures, and timepieces will be available as well. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Doyle.
