and a branch of laurel; the legend, In utrumque paratus. The R. under the bust of the king. In 1644, he made a large oval medal, stamped in silver, with the effigies of a man holding a coin in his hand, and this inscription, Guliel. Parkhurst Eq. aurat. custos Camb. et monet. totius Angliae 1623. Oxon. 1644.I take for granted this Sir W. Parkhurst had been either a patron or relation of Rawlins, or one cannot conceive why he should have gone back twenty-one years to commemorate an obscure person, so little connected with the singular events of the period when it was struck. This medal was in the collection of Sir Hans Sloane, and is now in the museum, as was and is, an oval piece of gold of Charles II., the reverse a ship ; better workmanship than the preceding. There is but one piece more certainly known for his, a cast in lead, thus inscribed : Rob. Bolles de Scampton in com. Lincol. Baronet; under the shoulder T. Rawlins F. 1665. There might be, and probably were, other works of his hand, to which in pru- dence he did not set his name. Such is the bold medallion of Archbishop Laud, struck in 1644. He was employed by the crown until 1670, when he died. There is a print of his wife, with this inscription : Dorothea Narbona uxor D. Thomae Rawlins supremi sculptoris sigilli Carol. I. et Carol. II. D. G. magn. Brit. Franc. et Hiber. regum. In Fleckno's works, published in 1653, in " Poem on that excellent cymelist or sculptor in gold and precious stones, &c. Tho. Rawlins."
was an eminent medallist in France, but appears by some works to have been in England, at least to have been em- ployed by English. There are four such pieces in the collec- tion of Mr. West; the first, a large medallion cast, Guil. fil. Rob. Ducy mil. et baronet, ætat suae 21, 1626. Another, a cast medal of Philip Howard S. R. E. Card. Norfolk.____________________
