The Grand Service

Over the course of 25 years George created one of the most spectacular dining services ever made. It became known as the Grand Service. As well as silver-gilt dining plate the service included works to be displayed on the buffet, traditionally arrayed behind the monarch himself. The royal goldsmiths Rundell, Bridge & Rundell were able to draw on a remarkable pool of artistic talent to design the 4,000 individual elements of the service. Together they created a series of works inspired by gothic, baroque, rococo and neo-classical motifs, on a monumental scale. The service remains in use to this day.
