Request for assistance in identifying what appears to be a crested piece of sea glass

Identification of crest
I found a piece of sea glass on the beach recently.
The details of the crest-like mark on the fragment are partially worn away, but there is still enough to suggest what the mark once was.
The mark appears to consist of a number of elements... first what seems to be a shield, flanked by two figures and with something similar to a crown surmounting the shield. The figure on the right appears to be standing, sort of like a lion rampant. Inside the shield are two letters super-imposed on one another. The first is an M and the other could be an O or a G or a C.
The thickness of the fragment is also interesting, ranging from 3/16" at the thinnest, through 5/16" to 1/8" on the other end. The curvature is also interesting, as it resembles the bottom of a wide bottle or jar.
Would appreciate any help in trying to find out the origin of this glass fragment
