The tureen with the small coat of arms of O'Neill of Upper Claneboys central top rim and their crest, A Dexter Arm In Antique Mail Embowed, Holding In The Gauntlet A Sword, All Ppr. on the centre of the rim on the cover. The family is said to have the oldest traceable genealogy in Europe, a remote ancestor being Niall of the Nine Hostages, the legendary 4th Century High King of Ireland.
"This is listed and illustrated erroneously in CAP I as 'King', which seems to have almost identical arms except for the tiny fish at the bottom of the shield, which was not clear enough for David (Howard) to see on a photo when he was working on this volume in the 1960s. However, it is indeed O'Neill, and the arms are as the quartering on the 'Baillie quartering O'Neill' service (CAP 2, p.570)."
