Combination 11
Vine, fruit and moth border pattern; note the scenes of Chinese life in a roundel to the reverse. Initials HL to sides of coat of arms. Helm denotes a Esquire. Full arms which do not correspond precisely to the entry in Burke's General Armory (there is a very small omission) but attributed to Henry Lane who worked over a long period of time in Canton. He was also charged with smuggling opium but found not guilty.
Date: Period 2, middle.
