Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
A pair of Chinese ‘Gu’ vases very similar to our pair and dated circa 1740-60, are shown in Keith Pinn’s book 'Paktong: The Chinese Alloy in Europe, 1680-1820' (Antique Collectors’ Club, 1999), p.44. Gu vases are not always easy to date but it can be assumed that this pair were made at approximately the same time as the coat of arms was engraved. This engraved English armorial can probably be dated to 1772.
