'The Sunflower' was associated with the return of the sun and the Stuart reign.
'The Bird in Flight' is a generic portrayal of the Stuart heir as a bird, either fleeing or returning,
was widespread. Various types of birds were referenced on glassware, as well as by
supportive writers and poets. Quite often the bird is depicted as a crested Jaybird.
Reasons cited range from the allusion to the name 'James', to 'Aesop's Fables'.
