The silver plates in this set of six feature extensive engraving. Each plate is engraved with a series of interlaced patterns of boteh and palmette motifs. The outer rim of each plate is engraved with a stylised sequence of linking palmettes, a boteh motif at the centre of each palm frond. The top of each plate, within this sequence, includes a vacant shield of unengraved polished silver. The central disc of each plate is decorated with a stylised version of the pattern described along the rim. The palmette and boteh motifs that cover the surface of each plate overlay a background of finely engraved minuscule foliate decoration.
