Pair Antique Armorial Porcelain Dishes with Armorial of Inglis Made circa 1830
We are pleased to offer The arms of Inglis on a pair of lovely antique armorial porcelain dishes. These stylized square antique dishes feature the crest of the Inglis family of Scotland. While the armorial is the main feature of the plate, it is further decorated with a double chain along the border, giving greater focus to the armorial and the beautiful bouquet in the center.
The motto, “Recte faciendo securus,” translates to “[there is] safety in acting justly!
The Arms of Inglis
The armorial bearings depicted upon this pair of William IV English
porcelain dishes by a Staffordshire, English pottery dating to 1830 – 40.
They may be blazoned as follows:
Arms: Azure a lion rampant argent on a chief of the last three
Crest: A demi-lion rampant holding in his dexter paw a mullet
Motto: Recte faciendo securus [Safety in acting justly]
From the evidence of the blazon of these armorial bearings and their associated motto, they belonged to The Right Honourable John Inglis of Glencorse in the County of
Edinburgh (born 21st August 1810 and died 20th August 1891), the Lord Justice General
of Scotland and Lord President of the Court of Session with the judicial title of The Honourable Lord Glencorse. John was the youngest son of The Reverend John Inglis
DD, the Minister of the Old Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh’s Old Town, and his
wife, Maria Moxham Passmore. He married Isabella Mary Wood on the 20th of July 1842 at Edinburgh. She was the daughter of Alexander Wood, The Honourable Lord Wood, a Lord of the Court of Session in Edinburgh, and one of John’s senior colleagues. Price: $700
