Not so sure I would call that very similar Peter. Those balls on the intermediate tips are quite common but missing on Stews - with the small number of elements to combine for various purposes any big differences like that are important. Also the jewelled bands differ but not as significantly perhaps.

Hi ,
           Yep ,correct, to quick with the word very,here is another group, again with similar variations , http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/lot/a-dutch-engraved-goblet-depicting-the-first-5350115-details.aspx?pos=236&intObjectID=5350115&sid=

( previous blurb here deleted because it was rubbish lol , the OPs is obviously a ducal coronet as previously indicated , should have looked back before engaging the keyboard.)

I did find this though which again suggests that this coronet was used by more than 1 country ,  scroll down to KIngston Upon Hull ,
