STEWART armorial fish (11N12)             £ 85
Very interesting armorial fish - the Stewarts had numerous sets of counters made over the years and this is from one of the early ones in around 1770. It shows the crest of the Stewarts - a pelican vulning - the pelican was a symbol of maternal dedication, being reputed in times of scarcity of food to feed her young on her own blood, as shown in the crest.
