Scottish, ivory mull, with silver mounts and the escutcheon of a chained monkey, the heraldic crest of the Anglo-Irish aristocratic family, the Fitzgeralds. The Fitzgeralds had properties in Ireland and Buckinghamshire, England. The “Peerage of England” dated 1779 clearly indicates the crest. The mull is made from very thick and heavy ivory that is richly patinated. It has a silver hinge of excellent quality. The mull is in very good condition. circa 1730, 1.5″H, 2″W, 1.75″D
