inscription: Double double
toyle and trouble Fyer burne and caldrone bubble Macbeth
matching arms: Stratford
notes: The model, which
is identical in shape to the Peterborough Tripod, carries the inscription
in Gothic script on the side with the initial letter D illuminated (this
is just visible in the photograph). It can also be found bearing Shakespeare's
Arms, which many people
accept as matching on the grounds that the inscription is a quotation from Act IV Scene 1 of his play Macbeth.
