The royal coat of arms is majestically displayed on these beautiful silver plates by highly-regarded London silversmith William Elliott. The plates are skillfully fashioned with gadrooned and scalloped edges. Of particular interest is the coat of arms, which is flanked by the traditional symbols of the British Royal Family, the lion and unicorn, and encircled with the motto of the Order of the Garter, “Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense.” These arms most likely belonged to William Vane, 1st Duke of Cleveland and Viscount Barnard, who was created a Knight of the Garter in 1839, and whose family motto, “Nec Temere Nec Timide,” is placed below the crest. Hallmarked London, 1830 9 3/4” diameter William Henry Vane was born in 1766, the son of the 2nd Earl of Darlington, and was baptized at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace (with the name William Harry, which he later changed to William Henry). He was styled Viscount Barnard from birth. In 1792, he succeeded his father as 3rd Earl of Darlington and was created Marquess of Cleveland in 1827. He was later Bearer of the Third Sword at King William IV's coronation on September 8, 1831 and was created Baron Raby, of Raby Castle in the County Palatine of Durham, and Duke of Cleveland in 1833.
