Decorated with the armorial of the Berkeley family on each side, with the inscription ‘DIEU AVEC NOUS’ underneath. Painted with hunting scenes – depicting the well-known Berkeley Hunt – on both the top and front faces; and with the arms of the Berkeley family on either side of the hunting scene on the front. With a carrying handle on each side.

The Berkeley Family Armorial: The armorial of the Berkeley family dates from about 1200 and consists of gules, with an argent chevron between 10 argent crosses pattée (or patty); 6 in chief (above the chevron) and 4 in base (below the chevron).

The Berkeley Hunt: The Berkeley is the oldest pack in the country. It is one of a few which continue to be family owned and the property of the Berkeley family. The Fifth Earl of Berkeley could hunt his hounds from Berkeley Castle to Berkeley Square in London and had six kennels along the route. The season would begin in Berkeley and advance to London through each of his kennels; before returning to Gloucestershire again in stages. The present kennels date from the early 18th century and house around 90 hounds.
Possibly supplied to the Berkeley family, Berkeley Castle, Gloucestershire.
