This antique engraving of heraldry was made in the 1840s by Thomas Jack. Heraldry is a system of visual identification - think of it as an early form of branding ! Noble families wanted everyone to know how important they were. As most people could not read, heraldry was the perfect way for the nobility to brag. Every symbol in heraldry design has meaning.
This is a genuine antique print, not a reproduction and is in excellent condition.
Decorate your home or office in a noble fashion !
