19th Century Scottish Grant of Arms Wallace & Leather Box

Taking a brief look at internet auction sales during 2009 I came across this one which I don't think I had time to bring to your attention. It is the 19th Century Scottish Grant of Arms to Wallace complete with original Leather Box.

 The arms of Hugh Robert Wallace

Described as being a 59cm x 44cm grant of arms document hand painted with the arms and motto of Hugh Robert Wallace of Busbie and Cloncaid, dated 1898, with the original red wax seal contained in a black metal case and attached to the document by red and white silk rope which has a tassel, the document was sold along with its original red leather box with VR cypher in gold on the top.

The winning bidder aquired the lot for the reasonable bid of £412 on the 8th May 2009.
History: 8 bids
Winning bidder: Bidder 4 

The original box is, in my humble opinion, a superior item when compared with the cardboard tube Scottish grants arrive in today.
