Crowns should not be too hard to ID, might just turn to be some Royal/Ducal A hole (http://www.debook.com/gifs/Mailsmoker.gif) private suite. Atholl for e.g.

Obviouisly would like a nice big set of images for Scotland's Glass please  :thud:

I spent half the night laying awake trying to recall a tobacco company name (beginning with A) that I thought I remembered from my days of collecting the cards.   In the end in came back, and was Ardath   -  but I've searched and I don't see any obvious connection with Scotland/E & L or a crown  etc., so can I now go back to sleep please :)   Best of luck with your sleuthing jp.

A trade mark is very unlikely... some crown monograms http://belovedlinens.net/monograms/crowns-monograms.html more via google

Rankings http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronet

A few more, love Hillary's http://www.heraldicsculptor.com/gartcres.html
