1st is paper, 10th is tin

Tin plates featuring 18th Century designs inspired by the Sèvres soft-paste porcelain in the Wallace Collection. The plates are very lightweight, they are 10 inches (26cm) in diameter and ideal for picnics or summer garden parties.

Annette de la Renta bought hundreds of these plates about a decade ago for the wedding dinner of her daughter Eliza Reed (Mrs Alexander Bolen). When pictured in the pages of Vogue, the plates became an instant trend.
