Carved and Painted Family ShieldCarved and Painted Family ShieldCarved and Painted Family ShieldCarved and Painted Family Shield

This heart shaped family shield or crest depicts a two-headed, winged griffin with flowers in each beak, beneath a foliate crest, perhaps sunflowers. It measures 17 1/2" tall and 12 1/4" wide. It is carved from a single plank of 1" oak.

The shield is painted red with the deeply carved details in gold leaf, some of which survives.

The crude carving and surface suggests an 18th Century date.

The condition is very good with an untouched early surface. Two holes in the shield remain from its original use.
