Literature: The Order of the Garter (the Royal Coat of Arms) is the highest order of chivalry. The motto "Honi Soit Qui Mal y Pense" means "Evil (or shame) be to him that evil thinks.' In 1808 there were only 4 royal persons entitled to use this armorial together with the prince/princess's coronet. The provenance of this salver is unknown however it would have been commissioned by the original royal owner either for their own personal use, or as a presentation item, or it could even been part of a British ambassador's suite of silver.
