The Arms, Crest and Motto are those of the Scottish family of Lyell. They impale those of Beale of County Herefordshire and Northants. They are specifically those of Charles Lyell Esq of Kinnordy, co. Forfar. He married Mary Beale of West Looe. Their eldest son, also Charles Lyell ( 1767-1849 ) was a famous botanist and translator of Dante. His eldest son, another Charles, originally trained as a lawyer and was regarded as one of the foremost geologists of his day. He was created 1st Baronet of Kinnordy in 1864 and the title became extinct in 1875. Hester Bateman made very few Salvers and to find one of this size, and of this design, is most unusual and very rare. It displays a crisp set of marks on the reverse.
