James Dempster, over at the HSS, spotted this hatchment on sale at ebay by timw3007.

The Arms seem to be those of Vessey:

Arms: Ermine on a cross Sable five martlets Or

Crest: An arm embowed and couped at the shoulder erect from the elbow habited Gules cuffed ermine holding in the hand proper four leaves Vert.

The hatchment was made by Winsor & Newton of London and is just 14 inches by 14 inches which is somewhat smaller that the usual.  I could not find it listed in the Hatchments of Britain.  These last two factors might indicate it was a “sample”.
