Point of Note
The interesting arms on the tureens are of the prominent Scottish family of Robertson, who are recorded in Burke’s LG with six different branches. A possible record for any family !
The crest was granted by James II of Scotland for having with ” great courage and intrepidity” apprehended the murderers of James 1. The man in chains beneath the arms was adopted in commemoration of this event, presenting one of the apprehended murderers, doubtless awaiting a gruesome fate.
The imaged arms are almost certainly those of Ross ? Rose. Charles Robertson of Kindeace married Janet, daughter of Hugh Rose Of Clava, co Nairn, so they may be his arms.However, that particular pedigree is very short but we do know his eldest son and successor died in 1844.
Excellent condition with a small repair on the handle of one of the tureen covers.
