Armorial Dish Motto "By industry and Hope" above an Eagle
A forest green armorial dish with a crest and motto "By industry and Hope" above an eagle. The dish has the crest and motto of the Family of Horrock. Made in England by Chamberlain's Worcester during the reign of George IV, circa 1825. Chamberlains Worcester was one of the leading porcelain manufacturers of the late 18th and early 19th century. Clients of the company included Lord Nelson, and the Prince Regent who granted the company his Royal Warrant in 1807. The armorial may be blazoned as follows: Crest: On a rock an eagle with wings elevated and addorsed proper pendant from the beak a shield azure charged with a hank of cotton also proper. Motto: Industria et spe [By industry and hope]. Dimensions: 9 inches diameter Condition: Excellent Price: $700 The crest was granted by the Kings of Arms at The College of Arms in 1825 to Samuel Horrocks. In all probability this dish was at one time part of a much larger service that was undoubtedly commissioned by Samuel Horrocks (born 27th November 1766 died 24th March 1842). Samuel was the eldest son of John Horrocks, of Bradshaw, near Bolton in the County of Lancashire and his wife, Jane Booth. Samuel married Alice Duckworth, the daughter of Christopher Duckworth, of Edgworth in the County of Lancashire on the 2nd August 1786. By the time of his death in 1842, Samuel was one of the most successful cotton manufacturers in Preston. He also became the Member of Parliament for Preston from 1804 until 1826. Having made a considerable fortune, he built his family a well-appointed home at Lark Hill surrounded by his own estate near to Preston.
