Rare Burton Constable Hall Family Crest


A delightful and rare 18th century plaque for William Constable FRS FSA, 1721-1791, the naturalist and scientist of Burton Constable Hall in East Yorkshire. 

Hand painted with the latin words ‘Sans Mal Desir’ meaning, Intend no evil or without bad desire, framed in a beautiful walnut frame, this piece is in fantastic condition for its age. C1721

In the thirteenth century the Constables added their name to the manor of Burton (meaning settlement at a fortified dwelling). Burton Constable Hall is a large Elizabethan country house in England, with 18th- and 19th-century interiors and a fine 18th-century cabinet of curiosities. The hall, a Grade I listed building, is set in a park designed by Capability Brown with an area of 300 acres.

This piece would make a superb addition to any collection.
