Description

Description:
Antique English pewter broad rim charger of 20.25in diameter, by Lawrence Dyer of Aldermanbury, St. Lawrence, London; who worked 1649 - 1691.
The charger has a full set of hallmarks to the front rim and a touchmark to the reverse rim.
The front rim is engraved with a crest, it is suggested that this is the family crest of the Skrymshire family of Norbury, Staffordshire. The paternal arms were granted to John SKRYMSHIRE of Norbury in 1584. The family were derived from Nottinghamshire and the second and third quarters of the paternal quarterly show the arms of the MUSCHAMP family, Geoffrey SKRYMSHIRE (born 1430) having earlier in Nottinghamshire married the heiress Margaret MUSCHAMP (born 1435). Although the maternal impaled arms are at present unidentified it is expected that the arms are a variant of the TALBOT family arms, John SKRYMSHIRE having married Dorothy TALBOT in the early 17th century. The blazon: quarterly of four - 1,4: gules, a lion rampant or, within a bordure vair (Skrimshire). 2,3: azure, a chevron between three butterflies argent (Muschamp) - impaling - argent, two chevronells gules (Talbot?)
