Two exceptionally well preserved Armorial drum jars, enriched with the history of the East India Company. "From 1698 the company was entitled to use the motto 'Auspicio Regis et Senatus Angliae' meaning, 'Under the patronage of the King and Parliament of England'. The jars display the Swiss flag which is flanked on either side of the crest on each jar, originally the flag of England was displayed, but later replaced by the Swiss flag as the company gained prominence. The motto was in use until the company dissolved in 1858. These jars are exceptionally rare and date C.1800 and the condition is perfect for the pair. hey measure 8 1/4" high.
