A discoid seal matrix with hinged handle to the reverse, '*' symbol for alignment; the heraldic face with heater shield, helmet with dog-head crest, mantle with flowers above; the shield with hatched fess and sharply incised saltire cross over (probably indicating the cancellation of the seal after the death of the member of the Delamie family); blackletter legend to the border 'b delamie bayon'; French workmanship. See De la Chenaye-Desbois, M.Dictionnaire de la Noblesse, Paris, 1774. 17 grams, 29mm (1 1/4"). From a London collection; acquired 1990s. The Dictionnaire de la Noblessse p.637, associates the title of Bayonne with the Haraucourt family one of the four ancient houses of chivalry in Lorraine and one of the most illustrious of that province. The family name was spelled Haroucourt, Harecourt or Harcourt and they held lands in both France and England after the Norman invasion.
