This period, of over a hundred years, was long enough to see massive economic, social and political change. Likewise the silverware of the period varies massively in style and technique. In the George I period and the middle of George III's reign, we find some of the simplest silverware designs ever produced in English silver whilst in the George II, late George III and George IV periods we find some of the most ornate.
As such to say 'Georgian Silver' or 'Georgian Silverware' is not to indicate a style but simply a time period and the term should mostly be avoided.
