Seal

This is a rather poor example of the great seal of King Charles II. It is broken into eight pieces and part of it is missing.

On the turned up edge is written

Examinatur per nos
(William [.... ])
(et )
R[.Ö.]court)
in Cancellaria Magistrorum duos +

The entire headpiece of the first membrane of this document of this document has been engraved and parts of it inked in. There is an engraved portrait of the King within an oval 6 x 5 inches which itself lies with the enormous capital C 10 x 8 inches which is lavishly decorated with interlacing penwork, scroll penwork and conventional foliage. The capital letters S in Secondus and D in Dei are decorated in the same way and the words Carolus Secundus Dei grati have been inked in. Above these words are arranged from left to right.

1. A lion rampart crowned and holding erect a banner bearing a rose crowned for England; nearby is a large carnation growing out of the ground.
2. In the centre is a circular shield bearing a quarterly 1 and 4, quarterly 1 and 4, 3 fleur-de-lis for France, 2 and 3 3 lions passant quadrant for England, 2.a lion rampart within a tressure flory counter flor for Scotland, and 3-a harp for Ireland, all surrounded with the ribbon of the order of the garter inscribed with the motto HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE, over all a crown and underneath the motto DIEU ET MON DROIT on a scroll on either end of which sits a butterfly at rest; from behind the shield sprout on the left a wild rose for England and on the right a thistle for Scotland.

3. On the right is unicorn rampart, collared and chained holding erect a banner bearing the Irish harp [for Ireland]; nearby is a pink and behind the unicorn another flower.

+ The signatures are not completely legible.

The whole design is uncoloured. It would appear that approximately 1Ĺ inches is either missing from the right hand edge of the first membrane or was not allowed for by the scribe in planning out his first line, as the final a from the word gratia is missing as is also part of the decoration of the heading. Words in the text have been enlarged for emphasis.
