Thank you for posting Helleri. There are far too many readers out there who simply do not wish to post or venture observations or ideas on items being discussed. As you have observed, the lion head was used in Prussia, as well as a number of other nations. It is hard to decide which influenced whom, but whatever the case, the similarities are often profoundly notable.
While this appears to be Dutch, or that is in the realm of the VOC, as has been discussed, your note is well based.
