Irish Sterling Flatware, Montmorency Arms

An impressive set of 42 pieces of heavy Dublin made sterling flatware all engraved with an interesting crest. My friend in England, who is a true heraldry expert, offers this explanation: “So I suggest that the attribution be something like “The crest is that of Montmorency (formerly Morres) below a Viscount’s coronet and therefore for either the Viscounts Mountmorres or the related Viscounts Frankfort de Montmorency, both of the peerage of Ireland.””

There are 12 dinner forks, 12 tablespoons, 12 smaller forks and 6 dessert spoons.

9 dinner forks and 7 tablespoons were made by John Power in 1786. The rest are made to match and marked for T. Farnett, 1827-29. They all appear to have been engraved at the same time.
