The Arms, Crest and Motto are those of Dundas, impaling Beauclerk, for the Hon. Charles Lawrence Dundas, 4th son of Thomas Dundas. Thomas was 1st Baron of Ask, co. York. Charles's wife was Lady Caroline Beauclerk, daughter of the 5th Duke of St. Albans. Charles was born in 1771 and they married in 1797. He died in 1816 and she died in 1838. They had a son and a daughter. The Arms of Beauclerk, as shown here, are the Royal Arms of the Stuarts, debruised by a batton sinister to indicate bastardy. The first Duke of St. Albans was Charles II'S natural, but illegitimate, son by Nell Gwynn.
The design of this piece is outstanding and is modelled in the high Neo-Classical style. The quality of production is also outstanding, as would be expected from this partnership. The urn is fully marked in the foot and with the maker's mark, sterling mark and duty mark on the cover. This certainly has to be one of the finest and most beautiful urns we have offered over all of the years, especially with this provenance.
Height: 14 inches, 35cm.
