Trinket Box Heart-shaped Porcelain with Coat of Arms Hand-painted Vintage 3 x 3. This delicate hand-painted heart-shaped porcelain box displays a coat of arms, similar to the British Howard family crest. The piece is replete with wonderful flourishes and details: the escutcheon or shield bears a white (argent) bar dexter on a red (gules) ground with three gold crosses on each side, and a gold coronet for a crest.As supporters, a lion appears dexter and a horse sinister. Inscribed on a blue banner is the motto inchesSola Virtus Invicta inches (Virtue Alone is Invincible). Two gold batons with black ends are crossed (in saltire) behind the shield, and polychrome painted flowers and white scrollwork surround the coat of arms. They also appear on the sides and interior of the box. The box and hinged lid have white metal edging and a shell-shaped closure. Taken as a whole it is charming, and quite memorable. Size 3" (7.6 cm) high, 3" (7.6 cm) wide, 1-1/4(3.2 cm) deep.
