Coronet ID - English or continental type?

Postby SimonJersey » Fri Aug 10, 2018 8:39 am

Hello,
Please could someone ID the type of coronet that is engraved on the Lid of an early 20th century Walker and Hall dish.
The circlet has 7 pearls which makes me wonder if it is in fact a continental coronet?
(The monogram appears to be two 'M's intertwined)
Kind regards,
Simon

An English viscount's coronet would normally show eight or nine "pearls" along the upper edge, but though it only shows seven pearls, the coronet shown here is within the bounds of identifiability as an English viscount's coronet.

Just my two pence worth.

Hi,
It seems number of pearls was not strict.

A viscount’s coronet shown here with nine and seven pearls (the same family).
Scandinavian barons had seven pearls,too.
