Description

A stunning Jacquard woven cushion cover backed with contrasting velvet and concealed zip.
Heraldry came into existence in the early 12th Century when knights started wearing armour. In the case of full battle armour identification of knights was difficult. Therefore devices started to be put onto the knights shield and surcoats. Hence the description `coat of arms' which is derived from the use on surcoats. It became custom for these devises to be passed from father to son. Kings ordered records to be kept of the coats of arms, to control their use and eliminate duplication. Heralds use a mixture of English and old French to blazon (describe) a coat of arms. Fabulous mythical beasts were often used in the designs, gryphon, dragon, wyvern. cockatrice, opinicus and enfield. Tournaments were a great occasion for the display of heraldry. Only nobility were permitted to take part, this kept the heralds busy checking the credentials of the combatants.
The coat of arms featured on this cushion is from the Monarchs on the throne during the period covered by George III, George VI and William IV all are buried in St George’s Chapel.

  • Measures L50 X W50cm
