TO COMMEMORATE
THE
PEACE
1902
GIVEN BY
ROSE LADY GRAVES SAWLE
The date of 1902 must relate to the Second Boer War.

Rose, Lady Graves Sawle (née Paynter, 1818-1914), was the wife of Sir Charles Brune Graves-Sawle, 2nd Baronet (1816-1903), who was a JP and served as MP for Bodmin 1852-1857. They lived in Restormel, Cornwall. Extracts from her diaries were published under the title "Sketches from the Diaries of Rose, Lady Graves Sawle, 1833-1896" and it is accepted that they contain a character who was the prototype for Quilp in Dickens's The Old Curiosity Shop (1841). Writer and poet Walter Savage Landor (1775 -1864) wrote many poems dedicated to her.
