Very Rare Carved British Royal Coat Of Arms

Very rare carved British Royal Coat Of Arms / Crest. This was most likely fitted to the inside of a government or judicial building. Carved from white Carrara marble, now heavily weathered the surface looks like York stone. This can be fitted to a steel frame to provide support and allow it to be used as wall mounted decoration.

Some background information;
Unification of England and Scotland, from James I accession to the throne (1603-25), following the death of Elizabeth I. This monarchical change saw the inclusion of the Unicorn as a supporter of the shield along with the English Lion. (1707). When James I became King of England he also became King of Ireland, hence the inclusion of the Irish harp in one of the quarters of the shield. The crest also features a prancing horse in one of the quarters, an inclusion that corresponds to the Hanoverian influence on the British crown during the reign of the Stuarts, beginning with George I in 1714, was later removed in 1837 with accession of Queen Victoria, who as a woman had no claim to the Hanoverian throne.
Motto of British monarchs; Dieu et mon droit (‘God and my right hand’ )
Motto of the Order of the Garter; Honi soit qui mal y pense (‘Evil to him who evil thinks’)
Carved lettering would appear 18th century.
Buckle; symbolises victorious fidelity in authority.

A little piece of our history:

History, telling the stories of the past and letting them live again in the future, is core to everything we do at UK Heritage. So let us also share with you a little piece of own history.

We've been buying and selling architectural heritage pieces since the grand old year of... 2006.  yes we may seem relatively young in the world of antiques, but thanks to our dedicated and experienced team our knowledge knows no bounds.

Our business was founded by Ben Couchman, a man dedicated to learning about the history of every piece he comes across. He knows a thing or two about architectural antiques, and can often be found scouring the UK and Europe to uncover decorative or functional architectural treasures that deserve their chance to shine again.

Our home in Herfordshire:

Our impressive rural site in Herefordshire is currently home to over 2000 antiques. Arranged around a courtyard, it includes an 18th Century barn as well as three large, modern warehouses. It only takes a quick walk around some of our dedicated showrooms to almost feel each piece jumping out at you, begging to share their stories and add to yours.

Our philosophy:

Sustainability and ethical responsibility are the buzzwords of today and while it's easy to say this is a priority, it is often a little more difficult to prove. However, our business model relies on both.

We don't buy or create new. We reuse, recycle and give architectural antiques that were once destined for landfill an opportunity to continue creating history. Everything is antique and unique. We also do not sell items that contain ivory or that are dangerous to health or the environment.

Who we work with:

In our time we've supplied a little piece of history to interior designers, architects, retailers and private clients across the world. Our list of previous customers is quite impressive too, having worked with Cambridge and Oxford Universities, Claridge's and Warner Brothers, to name just a few.
