This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ... the cap, seems to have at the same time replaced the rich nonregal Commonwealth crown. The two smaller maces closely resemble the larger mace in design and ornament, but retain their handsome looped coronets. The panels round the head bear the borough arms and St. George's cross, alternating with crowned roses. These latter date from the Restoration, as do the royal arms on top. None of the maces appear to be hall-marked. The mayor's gold chain and badge were made by Messrs. T. &. Bragg. The chain is composed of a number of letters B, for Bridgewater, alternating with shields for the names, etc. of successive mayors. The badge bears an enamelled representation of the borough device, a triple-towered castle on a bridge of three arches, with various civic emblems. The salt-cellar is 6 inches in diameter, and consists of a deep drum, with a slight hollow on top-for the salt. Round this are three scrolled arms to carry the napkin for keeping the salt clean. The total height is about 8 inches. Round the drum is inscribed: "Ex dono T/10. Wro/he milit' Remrdat' Burgi de Bridgvvater 1638," and round the depression for the salt: " Sal sapit anmia." Hall-marks: London, 1633-4; maker's mark, CF or CT in monogram. The weight is twice engraved on the salt as " 45-8-3 grs 5 gr " and " 45 oz. 17, 12." Through ignorance of the true character of this salt-cellar, it is now used inverted as a wine-cooler or bottle-holder. The two loving cups form a pair. They are about 8 inches high, with deep conical bowls and baluster stems, and have engraved on one side the town arms, on the other: "Ex do/Io Margaretta Iones z/id'uze." Hall-marks: London, 1640-1.
