Trumpet banner, with Royal Arms of Charles II

This silk trumpet banner was made around 1660, probably in England. The banner would have hung from the trumpet of one of the four state trumpeters. These trumpeters announced the heralds when they were making official proclamations.

The banner shows the Royal Arms of Charles II as used in Scotland.
