Abstract

In mid 18th-century Ireland, Edward Synge, the Bishop of Elphin, spent a lot of time thinking about dishes. He needed dishes for two homes and he knew exactly what he wanted in terms of both design and function. One of these houses was a grand Bishop's Palace at his diocese in Elphin, Co Roscommon, and the other was a townhouse in Dublin.
