Dish: AAA4541.1 and Lid: AAA4541.2. Japan pattern muffin dish or hot water dish with a cover, part of a breakfast service that belonged to Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson (1758-1805). The dish is painted in colours and gilt inside and out and also on the lid, which has a gilt loop handle. The base is made in one piece with a double skin and hollow handles for filling with hot water. The design shows a bowl of flowers in the centre and three panels of flowers, both on the lid and the base, one panel on each incorporating two green birds. Between the flower panels there are three reserves containing Nelson's 'SAN JOSEF' crest, inscribed with his motto 'FAITH AND WORKS', a Viscount's coronet and a Duke's coronet. 'Chamberlaines Worc' is inscribed inside the lid. The service was ordered by Nelson after a visit to Chamberlain's china factory on August 26 1802. In the inventory of the contents of his house at Merton, sold by Lady Hamilton in 1809, it is called the 'Horatia Service'.
