Basic parts and terminology
Above the helmet is a rope-like piece of cloth, usually depicted with alternate
bands of color. This object is to support the Crest. The crest can be a simple
object or animal. Sometimes it is very complicated, almost having a whole
coat of arms itself.
The fabric which drapes from the helmet is called the Mantle. The colors of
the mantle reflect the colors of the owners Coat of Arms.
The crown shown here tells us that this Coat of Arms
belongs to royalty. Most Arms would not have this symbol.
The sides of the Coat of Arms sometimes have Supporters.
Traditionally, the grant of a supporter was an honor to be earned, and it
is possible to have only a single support. Also, the supporters do not
have to be the same figure on both sides.
The supporters usually stand on a Base. This is another opportunity to
use symbolism. The base can be rock, grass, branches or water.
The bottom of the Coat of Arms can have a Motto Scroll. This is where you
put your catch phrase, usually in Latin.
Your Coat of Arms goes here. The shield shape shown is the most typical,
although the straight edge shield also works.
|What's the Difference?
Different helmet shapes and the way they are facing means different things in Heraldry. It can
denote rank, honor and region of origin.
For most designs, just pick what you like best!
|Typical Tapestry Pricing:
Tapestries start at $1000 for fabric size 4' x 5'. This is
a comfortable size used for full coats of arms, based
on many clients displaying the piece over a bed,
couch or fireplace. This includes the price of the
cloth, measure and cutting, backing and binding and
tabs or dowel pocket.
Tapestries larger than 4' x 5' will start at $1300
for material cost and extra labor.
