This is one of a group of chargers depicting William and Mary standing outdoors or William alone standing either outdoors or beneath arches. On the examples with the two monarchs together, William wears the same type of robe as here, but has nothing in his hands. This example, with a monarch holding a flower, is unusual. On the examples where William stands alone, he wears armor and holds a sword or he wears armor and ermine and holds an orb and a scepter.
