A counterproof of the engraving of the Walpole salver by A.J. Collins, plate LXI in Paul de Lamerie, citizen and goldsmith of London / by Philip A. S. Phillips. London : B.T. Batsford, 1935.
Original silve salver in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
"Whenever the Great Seal of England became obsolete, the silver matrix was converted by the holder into a grand piece of plate engraved with the design of the seal. The Walpole Salver was made by Paul de Lamerie in 1728/9 from the seal matrix rendered obsolete by the death of George I in the previous year. There is no documentary evidence that Hogarth was responsible for the engraving, but the attribution on stylistic grounds has not been disputed."--British Museum online catalogue.
