White china saucer with Stewarton Coat of Arms

Description:

This white china saucer is decorated with the Stewarton coat of arms (adopted fro the Cunninghame family's forked arms) and motto 'Over Fork Over', as well as a bonnet, for which the town is famed for making. Stewarton became linked with the Cunninghame family after Lainshaw House was purchased by William Cunninghame in 1779, where it remained in the family until 1947, when it was purcased by the local authority and turned in a care home for the elderly.
