Oil on board. Polychromed coach panel bearing the Royal arms as borne by George III following the he Acts of Union 1800, uniting the Kingdoms of Great Britain and Ireland, and having abandoned his ancestors' ancient claim to the French throne following the French Revolution by erasing the fleur de lys of France displayed previously in the second quarter.

The royal arms were thus changed, with England now occupying the first and fourth quarters, Scotland the second, Ireland the third - the Electorate of Hanover being represented on an inescutcheon surmounted by the electoral bonnet. The inescutcheon being tierced per pale and per chevron,for Brunswick, Luneburg and Hanover, with a further an inescutcheon over all three for the Archtreasurer of the Holy Roman Empire, the whole surrounded by the Garter, and beneath the imperial crown and with lion and unicorn supporters over the motto of the monarch 'Dieu et mon Droit' (God and my right).
