Here is an important English sealed wine bottle dating circa 1720. It bears the heraldic crest of the Lewis Family. The seal sports a greyhound standing on a chapeau. In English heraldry the grey hound is the symbol for royalty and the chapeau symbolizes peerage to the throne. About 6 7/8” tall. Deep green “black” glass. Deep kick-up with “sand pontil”. String rim chipped as in photos, otherwise excellent with no cracks or bruises, full gloss to glass and expected use wear.
The last 2 photos show the crest and reference as pictured in the monumental reference book, “Fairbairn’s Creats of the Families of Great Britain and Ireland“.
