Crest ID help needed on silver candlesticks
« on: Tuesday 27 October 20 16:01 GMT (UK) »
These are made by Thomas and Daniel Leader, early 1800. Not after 1809. Date stamp H. Edinborough assay office.
The crest has three bells in it (hard to see) and a clipped or covered up top left, I used to remember some of the proper terms but they escape my mind at the moment. Can anyone help me figure out the family please. First time posting here. Many thanks in advance for any consideration sent my way. Keith

Presumably Scottish? Durie added a chevron to the crescents. Who else?

It might be Carson since the chevron is engraved with vertical lines indicating that if coloured it would be red.  But that description does not include the roundels on the chevron.

The escutcheon in the middle may well represent Bell  :)  However, there are others with the canton which may be engraved to represent ermine which represent Porter.

Probably not helpful. :-\
