COMMENTS: Circa 1980's. The coat of arms of Bermuda depicts a lion holding a shield that has a depiction of a wrecked ship upon it. The lion is a symbol of England and alludes to Bermuda’s relationship with that country. The wrecked ship is the Sea Venture, the flagship of the Virginia Company. The ship was deliberately driven on to the reefs of Bermuda, by Admiral Sir George Somers, in 1609, to prevent it from foundering in a storm. All aboard survived, resulting in the settlement of the island. The Latin motto under the coat of arms, Quo Fata Ferunt, means “Whither the Fates Carry [Us]”. Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age. Cleaning and/or polishing to near new by request at no additional cost.
