Nice find, looks like the joining of two notable families through a marriage. I think the maker is Firmin London. :thumbsup:

Yikes...you'll need the master for this one!
I think the second one may be the Hamilton family from Marlborough House, its an oak tree with a frame saw and the motto will be ''Through'

Thanks, Easy.
Initial thoughts were THROUGH, so that is good, looks like we have that part ID`d.

The second set appear to be a dragon or Griffin sat in a crown and holding something and an eagle, but as they’re common motifs, and I don’t know it’s age, I can’t seem to narrow it down. 🤦‍♀️

Hopefully someone else will have more luck.

To me it looks like a lion holding a leek or similar vegetable. :Thinking:

I guess it will be early 19th century? It's sure an interesting one.

"Holding In The Dexter Paw A Slip Of Laurel Vert.", just how nice does that sound? :D
It might be a palm branch though?

Great find, but the plant is facing the wrong way...they could’ve just changed the design though.
