Chamberlains received an order for two magnicent services which were made for Nawab of the Carnatic, Azam Jah (r.1819-1825), around 1820 (India). The pink set has the Nawab’s insignia in the centre of the plate surrounded by a floral wreath. The inscription reads “Amir Al Hind Nawab Azam Jah Bahadur Hirji 1236”. The date of 1236 is in the Islamic calendar and equates to 1820 in our time.
