A set of six silver gilt ice pails, each with plain collar with egg and dart border and ropework handles issuing from Neptune masks. The body has applied octagonal reserves of naval trophies and coats of arms; the lower body is applied with fruiting vines. On a gadrooned knop and circular foot cast with foliage. These ice pails form part of the Jamaica Service which was presented to William IV, when Duke of Clarence. The service was created with funds voted by the Jamaica Assembly, in recognition of the Duke's support of their opposition to the anti-slavery campaign.
