Clan Armstrong, an attractive crested Scottish fob seal, 19th century
The seal has a cornelian hardstone matrix engraved with Armstrong crest and motto. The crest shows an arm embowed holding a sword and the motto reads INVICTUS MANEO meaning in English I am unconquered. The matrix measures approx 12 x 9mm and the seal’s overall height is 32mm. The general appearance is of rich gold colour but the mounts are not solid gold. Clan Armstrong is a Lowland Clan which was reputed to be of a particularly warlike nature. The Court of Lord Lyon in Edinburgh does not currently recognise a clan chief but wearing this fob might make one feel like one.
