Chinese armorial plate Qianlong Chine de Commande Lindsay family Scotland.
Price 1077 USD(650 GBP).
A superb Chinese armorial plate, circa 1755.
I found a carving of these arms, above the doorway to the ancestral home, Wormiston House. The family eventually inherited several titles and the other family estates. The novel 'The Jacobite Grenadier', published 2013,tells the story of the Lindsays of Wormiston. Admiral Sir John Lindsay was a famous Admiral of the fleet, was awarded Order of the Bath, and was buried with the great and good in Westminster Cathedral.
