The raised borders of these Paul Storr soup bowls are embellished with an exceptionally crisp and impressive contemporary engraved coat of arms encircled with the motto of the Baronetage of Nova Scotia: 'Fax Mentis Honestæ Gloria' - Glory is the light of a noble mind and surmounted with a Lord of Parliament's coronet, all above the motto 'Ryde Through'*.


The opposing side of the aforementioned plateaued border is embellished with a bright cut engraved simplified floral design.
