Display Dish for Camelias

My sketch design in pencil and crayon, for a silver Dish in which to float Camellia flowers, commissioned by Mary, Duchess of Devonshire to mark her retirement as first Chancellor of Exeter University

Two further views showing the Dish (but without the Camellias!), and a detail showing the Rim of the Dish (exquisite chasing by Bill Richardson, engraved by George Lukes).
