Dumfries Silver Marks

Stag’s head

Description:

Several Dumfries and Galloway families used the stag’s head on their crest, most notably the Maxwells. 

 

The Canongate district of Edinburgh also used a stag’s head as a town mark, and this has led to the work of Dumfries silversmiths being mis-attributed in the past.
