I find this to be an interesting comment as the emblazonment is a very good copy of the 'College of Arms style'. It certainly looks very official!

Of what period? To me the supporters look like something from the 18th century, possibly copied from a carving. No herald in his right mind would grant such rubbish. Moreover the dexter supporter is holding a bow, which would might appropriate to the Bowyers' Company (though they would probably reject a recurve bow as un-English) but not to the Fletchers. As for the "strumpet with a trumpet" .....

The 15th century grant was without supporters.

But the fair maiden with the horn is my favorite part of these arms! - as a music lover, of course... ;)
