Dexter Flags, Arms & Maps Borough Arms 1900 Borough Arms 1900 30 - Produced during the reign of Queen Victoria when civic pride was at its height this delightful and under-rated series was issued by the small Nottinghamshire firm of R.I. Dexter & Co., whose factory was a Hucknall between Nottingham and Mansfield. It features arms of English towns, boroughs and cities in white embossed on a Wedgewood blue background and the backs are plain except for the company name. Among those places features are Birmingham whose arms reflect its industrial past, Bolton whose arms include an arrow representing archers from the area who took part in the Battle of Flodden in 1513 and a spindle representing the cotton industry, Leeds whose arms include two owls derived from the arms of the first Alderman and a fleece representing the wool industry, the City of London with its two dragons, Portsmouth with its Arab looking star and crescent and the three leopards or loggerheads on the Shrewsbury arms. There are very few arms for southern towns or cities, which is perhaps understandable as they were a northern firm, but why was Edinburgh included when all the rest were English examples? Whatever the reason this is a stylish set, size 63 x 36mm.
