Stag at Hampton Mansion

Stag Head

Stag Head

The Ridgley Family crest is “Beware of the Stag” and here we have a cup of a stag from their ancestral home, Hampton Mansion.  How charming these rosebud stag head cups would be gracing your dinner table.  John and Eliza Ridgely who took a keen interest in the estate’s land grew flowers on the parterres in the summer and in the orangery in the winter. A bit of Maryland history.
