Fans of quality architectural antiques are sure to love this fantastic hand carved buff sandstone foundation stone, which depicts the Wigan Borough Seal.
The stone would look fantastic incorporated into the fabric of a building project, or alternatively it would make a lovely garden feature.
The seal of Wigan was adopted in the seventeenth century was used in lieu of a coat of arms until 1922.
The seal depicts Wigan's Moot Hall, which was the earliest meeting place for the borough corporation, and featured a belfry and a market cross. The Latin inscription 'Sigillum commune villæ et burgi de Wigan' translates as 'The Seal of the Authority and Manor of Wigan'. The seal is surrounded by an attractive border of scrolls and swags, with olive branches to the vertical sides.
