This beautiful Coat of Arms Armorial Application originates from Germany. It dates back to the late 18th Century and is opulently embroidered with real Gold Plated Gilt thread. It depicts the coat of arm of a German Nobility Family. It shows a gold Lily - also called fleur-de-lis - in a red shield. The Metallic embroidery inside of the Lily is conducted magnificently. It has stunning decorations on the sides of the shield. On top of the shield is the "Older Crown of Nobility" of German speaking countries. Most likely the coat of arms is the one of the Renz family. It was presented to Ludwig and Ulrich Renz on July 13, 1513. They had ties to the famous French family of Châteaubriant - a noble Breton family.
