Audley coat of arms. Motto, Je le tiens.

Audley coat of arms. Motto, Je le tiens.

by Catton, Charles/Chesham

Colourful antique print of Audley coat of arms, with motto Je le tiens. (I hold it.)

Original copperplate engraving by draughtsman, etcher, line and aquatint engraver Francis Chesham (1749-1806) from a drawing by Charles Catton (1756-1819) for The English Peerage published in London circa 1790 (later hand-colour).

This series of coats of arms were published two to a page, one above the other. It was printed on hand-laid paper but is now only a half page. The hand-colour certainly adds to the appeal of this wonderful image.

It is mounted between antique-white ragmat conservation board, and cellophaned for protection until framed. Image within window measures 110 mm x 175 mm (approximately 4.25 x 7 inches). External measurement for frame is 240 x 305 mm (9 1/2 x 12 inches).
