    "Lo, like a Cheshire cat our court will grin" - Peter Pindar's Pair of Lyric Epistles (1792).

    Well four Cheshire cats in this case .... two new ones, tourist pieces from Weston-super-Mare and the other from Teignmouth. Teignmouth is in the county of Devon, situated on the north bank of the estuary mouth of the River Teign and about 14 miles south of Exeter. The coat of arms are based on those of the Bishop of Exeter: -Gules, a Saltire engrailed between four Leopards' heads or. Why the leopard's heads have morphed into four fleur-de-lis is not known.

    The other Cheshire cat was bought in Weston-super-Mare, a town in Somerset, England, on the Bristol Channel 18 miles south west of Bristol. Before 1928 the borough used the arms shown on the cat with a sun above a sea that have a great seaside look.

      Actually only one of these four is marked, Karen. It is the Teignmouth cat. It has a mark which reads "Anglo Heraldic Co." with an illegible motto ------ so far !!!

      I have found out nothing about this company as yet.
