Elkington & Co. patented the first commercial electroplating process and held Royal Warrants for Queen Victoria, King Edward VI, King George V, King Edward VIII and King George VI. French-born master sculpture Morel-Ladeuil joined Elkington in 1859, producing designs for the firm for a total of 23 years. This monumental pair is among the finest results of this highly successful collaboration.
A similar example of the first six months' dish is in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), while another pair was gifted by H.R.H. Prince Leopold to Bonamy Price, his political economy professor at Oxford. Another set is pictured on pages 84-87 in The Museum and the Factory by Alistair Grant and Angus Patterson.
