Catalogue Note

The crest is illustrated in James Fairbairn, Fairbairn's Crests of the Families of Great Britain and Ireland, as that of Perkins family, p. 377 and pl. 45, cr. 14 for the crest and pl. 23, cr. 11 for the coronet: "Out of a five-leaved coronet, or, a unicorn's head, argent, maned and horned, gold."

Built in 1693, Chipstead Place was purchased by Frederick Perkins, circa 1828-29, who substantially renovated it. The house was sold out of the family circa 1915 and listed as demolished circa 1931-32.

Country Life's February 1935 article 'Hayfield House, The Pennsylvania Estate of Mr. John Conyngham' states that woodwork paneling from the living room of the house "was brought over from England from Chipstead House". Hayfield House is now part of the campus at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, where the living room currently serves as the Community Room.

See lot 16 for a dessert service with the full coat of arms.
