Note: Note: The heraldic rose is the most common motif found on Jacobite glasses. It is often accompanied by either one or two buds. The rose is thought to represent the Royal House and the larger of the two buds the Old Pretender (son of James II 1688 - 1766) and the smaller bud The Young Pretender, Prince Charles Edward 1720 - 88. The moth or butterfly is thought to represent the decline of the Jacobite of the movement.
