A coat of arms was a distinctive heraldic design on a tunic used to cover and protect armour, but the term is more widely applied to mean a full heraldic achievement which consists of a shield and certain accessories. The design is a symbol unique to a person, family, corporation or a state. Historically coats of arms were first used by knights and lords on battle fields as a way to identify allied from enemy soldiers. The heraldic designs expanded and other social classes, who never went to battle began to use coats of arms. At first those closest to the lords and knights such as squires used coat of arms but others also started to use them .Priests and other dignities adopted coat of arms as seals and insignia .A hundred years later By the mid 13th century commoners and peasants were adopting heraldic devices.

Our Coats of Arms house plaque comes in different sizes and is made from Irish limestone quarried from Co. Kilkenny. Irish limestone is millions of years old and is known for its durability. Limestone is a sedimentary rock comprised of mineral calcite. The calcite in Irish limestone is most commonly marine organisms. Irish limestone usually has the fossilised shells of the organisms visibly embedded within the stone making this house plaque unique and an interesting addition to your home or an interesting and unusual present for a loved one. All our limestone is supplied by God and nature and worked by man.
