The coat of arms are painted en grisaille, are, Argent a chevron between two moors' heads sable The impaled arms, Argent a crescent between three boars' heads erazed azure or, with the crest, An oak tree fruted proper for Hog of Cammo
Diameter: 9 1/4 inches.
The pair of Scottish market Chinese Export armorial plates are painted in en grisialle, gilt and rouge de fer with the Arms of More impaling Hog.
Reference: Chinese Armorial Porcelain, Volume II, p 160, pl E6, David Howard.
Howard speculates the arms to be that of More because there is no correlation between any of the families who bear the dexter coat and the demi lion crest. The impaled coat and tree crest are those of Hog of Cammo, confirmed in 1736 and in Sir James Balfour Paul's Ordinary. The arms are borne by John Hog who married Mary Cochrane in 1707 and had two sons. It is very likely that this service was made for their sister (although there is no record of this).
It was the actions of a member of this family, William Hog, a merchant in Edinburgh (who approached his bank, the Royal Bank of Scotland in 1728 to ask for credit) that created what is known as an 'overdraft' today.
