The couple flanking the Royal Oak could theoretically represent King Charles II and Queen Catherine of Braganza, as 1662 was the year of their marriage.  The Royal Oak refers to the oak tree on the Boscobel Estate where Charles hid from Cromwell's troops following his defeat in 1651 in the Battle of Worcester during the English Civil War.  From there he was able to escape to France and remained in exile until the Restoration of the monarchy in 1660. It is likely this basket was originally in the possession of a Royalist family.
