The royal silver table service, just visible on the right, was made for use in one of George III's Electoral palaces in Hanover. Created in Paris in the 1770s and 80s by Robert-Joseph Auguste it includes 120 pieces engraved with the Royal monogram. Together they make up the largest element of the only surviving royal dinner service on public view. According to the experts at Waddesdon, there is no other French silver of this scale and magnificence to be seen in Great Britain.
The service is displayed on a semi-circular table, in the French style of the 18th century. It includes tureens, oval and round dishes with covers arranged as they would have been 200 years ago. Among the other treasures on this table are a mustard and cruet set loaned to Waddesdon Manor by the Louvre.
