19th Century Hatchment

Somerset based auctioneers, Lawrences, are offering for sale on the 18th January a rather splendid but small (39cm by 39cm) hatchment for a Marquess.  However, the Arms are unidentified, even with the assistance of the Heraldry Society.  Therefore, it seems likely that this is a sample or a promotional example.  The auctioneer’s estimate is £50 to £100. – UPDATE Sold for £400hatchment2Arms: Gules on a fess Argent between three mullets erminois a lion passant guardant Sable.

Crest: An eagles’s head erased Or gorged with a collar gemelle Azure ducally crowned Gules .

Supporters: Two griffins proper collard Or.

If these Arms have not been Granted in England & Wales, Ireland or Scotland, perhaps some non-armigerous individual can petition for them?  All they need do thereafter is work out how they can be ennobled as a Marquess.
