Between June 7, 1809 and May 9, 1810, 38 plates of this model with a gold frieze, cartel of flowers, nine of which were defective (presumably because of the bottom that did not hold), entered the store several times of sale of the manufacture. The price of each plate was fifty pounds. Unfortunately, the recipient of this service is unknown.
