Wimbledon-Furniture is delighted to offer for auction this stunning and very rare Charles II English Royal coat of arms hand carved in solid wood 1660-1685

A truly sublime piece, I have never seen an armorial crest of this detail and quality before, it is truly exquisite, I absolutely love every bit of it

King Charles II of England’s coat of arms (r. 1660-1685) contains a crowned lion (left), a symbol of England, and a unicorn (right), a symbol of Scotland. The crest (center) represents England, Scotland and Ireland: the three lions of England appear in the first and third quadrant, the lion of Scotland in the second, and the harp of Ireland in the fourth. The three fleurs-de-lis in the first and third quadrants signal an old claim to the French throne. The motto on the garter surrounding the crest reads: “Honi soit qui mal y pense” (‘Evil to him who evil thinks’). Charles II’s motto, “Dieu et mon droit,” (‘God and my right’) stretches across the bottom.
