Re: Re: How well do you know Dublin?
I think I am (unintentionally) misleading people on the crown. That is not meant to be a white surround……………….
Interesting local history in that nameplate. Without wishing to be pedantic, it’s not a crown, it is a coronet, that of an earl, probably Pembroke. An earl’s coronet has eight strawberry leaves (four visible) and eight silver balls (or pearls) around the rim (five visible).
FWIW one of the Pembrokes was known as the “Architect Earl” (early 1700’s) because he was responsible for the building of Westminster Bridge.
