For the man who has (or should I say wants) everything armorial
I have just returned from one of my regular, enjoyable, sojourns to Edinburgh; good company, plenty of heraldry and, this time at least, exceptionally good weather. It has become something of a custom to have an informal heraldic show and tell and I thought I would share with you a piece which really is something for the man who has everything - an armorial pepper mill (or pepper pot). It's quite a cute little EPNS pepper mill which came with its own wee case. A snip at £20 or so from a local auction house, its new owner has had a silver escutcheon of his own arms made and attached to personalise it.
