It has come to our attention that a Glasgow museum, Provand’s Lordship, has on exhibit a 17th century chair with an apparent connection to the Mercers of Perth. From the style of its construction the chair is thought to have been crafted in Aberdeen. The back has an elaborately carved coat of arms on the back and the initials H.M at the top. It is thought that H.M. is probably the initials of the family member to whom the chair belonged. The arms carved on the chairback are of the style dated to 1565. No one having the initials H.M around that time period, has been identified.
