Heraldic Ass on a Pole

Heraldic Ass. Ragged with three pronged crown ducally gorged. This carving is to be placed on a pole at the new tudor knot garden at Old Hall near Norfolk. https://www.tudorexperience.com/about-old-hall. In the manner of Hampton Court Palace.

 Old Hall was built by the knight, Sir Edward Chamberleyne between 1510 and 1540.

The Chamberleyne crest has an ass at the top.

The ass head will go on a pole at the centre of the new garden.

The garden takes inspiration from the courtyard at Hampton.
