We ordered a custom coat of arms to serve as the centerpiece for the guestbook at our wedding. I couldn't be happier with the final product and would highly recommend Marie's work to anyone.

About

A Short (very much abridged) History Lesson:

Knighthood was originally granted to a warrior by his sovereign in recognition of his fidelity, honor, and skill on the field of battle. His "coat of arms" would include such symbols of faith, loyalty, honor, courage, and military prowess as were reflected in the character of the original grantee. When displayed during combat on armor, shields, tack, and banners, soldiers could identify, then rally around, their leader. Over time, these coats of arms became recognized household sigils by which family lines, homes, and lands, were identified. The “family seal” or “crest”, used to conduct business transactions, was frequently composed using some part of the family name coat of arms.

Even though each grant was made to a single individual, and not actually to a family line, many people enjoy owning, and privately displaying, a coat of arms historically associated with their family name. In fact, many coats of arms are purchased with the intent to pass along from generation to generation. That being said, there are rules of law that govern the public display of coats of arms according to actual ownership, as a set of arms does not legally belong to an individual simply because he or she shares the same last name. As a result, many businesses and individuals who desire a coat of arms for public use, commission an original, custom design to ensure there is no infringement upon the original grant.

My listings are for artwork only, whether custom design or of historical reference, and the service I offer does not include arms registration or any genealogical study. However, while I cannot guarantee direct lineage to an original grantee, each coat of arms design is thoroughly researched by cross-referencing multiple historic armorial records using such ancestral information as is available from the client. As much as I’d love to do business with absolutely everyone, and I totally dislike disappointing people, there are some family names that truly have no heraldic record (regardless of what some fly-by-night companies will tell you). Caveat emptor!! Custom design services are available for those with no historic record. For further information on custom design services, please scroll to the bottom of the page.
