Mid-18th Century Female's Coat of Arms?

Postby WesternPA » Sat Jan 13, 2018 8:16 pm

Hi,

I am not asking for anyone to tell me whose coat of arms this is, as I should do the legwork myself - I was, however, hoping that folks would have an opinion on the nature of the devices on this coat of arms and their proper names, especially the ones that look like small pairs of wings, but are not quite symmetrical. This is on a mid-18th Century English piece. I believe the other two main elements are lions or leopards rampant and butterflies volant, although I'm not 100 percent sure they are butterflies, or perhaps could be a different insect. They also resemble bees, but there are no legs showing. Hoping for guidance - thanks!

It appears the devices above and below the chevrons may be pairs of wings conjoined in lure or leure.
