NotesWhile the identity of the owner could not be specifically determined, the surname Nisbet is a Scottish clan that has its origins near the border of Scotland and England. The clan crest badge features a boar passant sable (black), and armed argent (silver). Although this plate has the appearance of an engraving, it seems that the original illustration may have been drawn in pen and ink.
