A most unusual piece......the Shield has Bee Hives and Bees as decoration plus a Latin motto at base which we will try and advise on later. Of English origin ( found in Somerset earlier this year) the Shield measures 19" x 13"....has some light surface rust only.......easily to get rid of. An intriguing item....GREAT DECORATIVE PIECE for a bar, restaurant, man cave etc! HARD TO DATE THIS...not ancient but probably early 1900's.
