Coat of Arms of the South Sea Company

Coat of arms of the South Sea Company (the original grant of arms 31st October 1711), associated with the 'South Sea Bubble'. The arms on a cartouche: Azure, a globe, whereon are represented the Straits of Magellan and Cape Horn all proper and in sinister chief point two herrings haurient in saltire argent crowned or, in a canton the united arms of Great Britain of the second. Crest: A ship of three masts in full sail. Supporters: Dexter, the emblematic figure of Britannia, with the shield, lance etc. all proper; sinister, a fisherman completely clothed, with cap boots fishing net etc. and in his hand a string of fish, all proper. The company was formed to sell slaves to Spanish America. After a period of frenzied speculation the price of stock collapsed in 1720. The company continued to occupy the same premises until 1855 when the building housing the company board room was transferred to the Oriental Bank Corporation. The father of the original lender was assistant manager of the bank.
