The four candleholders surmount a crowned, rampant lion, the royal and national symbol of England, whose origin lies in Richard the Lionheart’s choice of golden lions for his alms. The lion proffers St. Edward’s Crown, so named because, in origin, it was the Confessor’s own, preserved by the Abbey and is now the Coronation Crown, The lion’s left paw is supported by a shield bearing a cross and five martlets: the arms of St. Edward, which are incorporated in those of the Abbey. The shape of the foot, with its twenty five gilt flutes, is reminiscent of the fab vaulting of the Henry VII chapel, the Abbey’s most wonderful architectural feature.
