This is the original Gouache painting by Patrick Nicolle.

Ever since the future King Charles II, in exile in Holland, gave each of four sea captains a silver greyhound taken from the lid of an ornamental dish to act as his token for messages between the court in exile and his supporters in England the silver greyhound has been a symbol of Royal Messengers.

The artwork was published in Look and Learn issue 289, 29th July 1967. Note that there is a glue stain at the top of the art; this is reflected in the asking price.
