Wedding Gift

Sometime after the wedding George and Caroline were notified that a gift had been delivered from the Mountjoys. The wedding present was a table suite consisting of a pair of Meissen porcelain candelabras and a centerpiece. The candelabras were themed, one with a figure of a milkmaid amid a motif of flowers and dancing cows, the other with a shepherd boy amidst foliage and leaping goats. The centerpiece was an intricately laced cornucopia, wherein fruit or flowers could be placed, held up by three cherubs with garlands of grapes covering their intimate parts in deference to the sensibilities of Lady Chichester upon a base of colourful flowers and foliage.

A card from Lord and Lady Mountjoy, wished the happy couple many felicitations upon the occasion of their wedding.
