Pair of Earl of Kintore Goblets


A large pair of early 19th century wine glasses or goblets with an engraved crest.

The bowls are plain but for the crest, which was used by Anthony Keith-Falconer, 7th earl of Kintore (1794-1844), of a fox head over a scroll bearing the motto "Floreat Scientia" (let knowledge flourish).

Kintore was a keen, and notoriously reckless, huntsman, "at his hunting box in Scotland, which he called "The Peat Stack,"on all the china, glass, and plate, was a fox's head engraved, with the motto 'Floreat Scientia,' and he had the same device on his travelling carriage"(Loder-Symonds, A History of the Old Berkshire Hunt from 1760 to 1904).

The glasses are in excellent condition. (Circa 1830)
