Coat of Arms Heraldic Crest Identification

Postby dartsil » Wed Apr 07, 2021 9:07 am

HI All.

A splendid English snuff box :

The question on this one is does anyone know anything about The Coat of Arms/ Heraldic Crest? Superbly well preserved with great detailing.

Thanks in advance,

The crown and helmet look more Continental than English. More specifically used by untitled nobility. The attitude of the horse is called forcené and if the hatching is done according to the normal conventions the field would be blue and the horse silver. Unfortunately this doesn't help much with identifying the coat of arms because it's rather generic and especially so if it's a Continental one and not English.
