inscription: Model of
Celtic urn dug up near Avebury.
notes: A very early model
which sometimes turns up bearing two coats of arms. The Goss Record gives
no particular agent for the model, and the arms of Calne are only quoted
here as "the" matching arms on the grounds that an advertisement by the
Calne agent in the 8th edition indicates that the Avebury Church Font is
specific to that agent, which is confirmed by the listings in the 9th
edition. The arms of Devizes and Marlborough, which are about the same
distance from Avebury as Calne, are also generally accepted as matching.
