Combination 5
Extremely rare style shaped with heads of dogs of Fo at ends of long-oblong. Was this a prototype for the later "double-dolphin" counters/silk-winders? Full arms on round with the motto "Nil Veritur Veritas" and crest of a dexter hand holding an eagle's leg. Reverse with star in roundel. Attribution to the Napier family of Ballikinrany. Related to an armorial porcelain service; see entry in Chinese Armorial Porcelain vol. 1 pg. 320 (reproduced with kind permission of the author).
Date: Period 1, early.
