These dishes were issued to Sir Gore Ouseley (1770-1844) upon his appointment in 1810 as Ambassador-Extraordinary and Minister, Plenipotentiary to the Court of Persia, when the dishes formed part of his ambassadorial service. On the side of each is engraved the arms, motto, and supporters of Ouseley and the arms of King George III. The finials feature a hound rising from a ducal coronet, a reference to the Ouseley family crest.
