Further details:

A tudor rose and pomegranate dimidiated. This attractive badge shows the Tudor rose and pomegranate joined together. The pomegranate was the badge of Catherine of Aragon, and the rose was the principle badge of the Tudor Kings. Catherine married two of King Henry VII’s sons, Prince Arthur in 1501 and, following Arthur’s death, Henry (the future King Henry VIII) in 1509. This badge would most likely have been produced at the time of one of these marriages as a form of cheap souvenir, a tradition that survives to this day!
