The service was originally commissioned for England's Commodore George Anson

in recognition of his arduous circumnavigation of the world, 1740-44.

In 1743, after crossing the Pacific, Anson harbored at Canton for supplies.

There he and his crew assisted in saving Canton from destruction by an ongoing fire.

In appreciation, the "Valentine Pattern" service was commissioned for Anson,

 depicting many things Anson had loved and longed for during the long voyage.

 


WISHING YOU A VERY SPECIAL DAY
