    I just received the shields I ordered. They are absolutely stunning. The wood base just shines and the brass is formed perfectly. You can tell it was handled with care. It was nice to see the effort and care they put into something that is important to me

    My order arrived today. Absolutely over the moon with them. They are beautiful and beautifully made. The customer service from the team was second to none. They obviously take great care and pride in their product from the research, making, packaging and posting. Thank you so much. I will sing your praises to all

  14. John and Betty

    We recently received our dual plaque and it far exceeded our expectations in quality and detail. The artisan should be rightly proud of her work.

    Thanks to Emma for her painstaking research – this was not a simple heraldic exercise!

    An important point to note is that the business was affected by the recent floods, yet Emma and the team delivered as promised.

    We cannot recommend Heraldic Names highly enough. Well done to everyone involved!

  15. Grant Barber

    I recently purchased a Double Pewter Shield and found Emma very easy to deal with and the effort put into the research to find the motto’s
    was above and beyond.

    The time and care from the team can be easily seen in the finished product. The exceptional craftsmanship of the shields and the beautifully detailed hand painting which made it a standout piece.

    Family and friends have all remarked that it looks amazing.

  16. Sam Rathbone (verified owner)

    We have just received our family crest which is a present for our son’s 21st. You can see the quality, and the care and attention to detail in the shield. Emma’s customer service was second to none.

Family Crest Plaque or Coat of Arms Shields

(16 customer reviews)



Every Heraldic Names shield comes with the Family Name History Certificates Included (save $35)
Family Crest Plaque (or Coat of Arms Shield) made by hand in Australia by our expert artisan, who has crafted these pieces for over 40 years.

We are very fortunate here at Heraldic Names, to have such a dedicated craftsperson who takes such painstaking pride in every order he receives.

Every Family Crest Plaque or Coat of Arms Shield goes through a laborious process. First the Timber Shield, the important component of your Family Crest Plaque is sculpted from furniture grade ‘custom-wood’. Each timber shield is then handmade, beveled, polished, stained and then finished in a high gloss clear lacquer. There are many different finishes, and our artisan ensure to pick the right timber shield colour to match the colours of your family Coat of Arms. Each Family Crest Plaque is completely unique, and not made en masse in China or some other international country.

The most important feature of any Family Crest Plaque or Coat of Arms Shield is the scope and quality of the artwork. All our plaques are hand painted by our highly skilled artists, in the true armorial colours as described in our vast library. The enamel paints that are used are imported from England, having used the same brand of paints for over thirty years, and are the highest quality found anywhere in the world. We completely dry, the artwork  will give a high-gloss reflective finish to your Family Crest Plaque, or Coat of Arms Shield. We guarantee the artwork will never tarnish or fade, infact our guarantee is a life-time guarantee.


Shields will no longer be supplied finished with the Gothic Olde English style fonts, but are supplied instead with Times New Roman or Baskerville style letters. 

When ordering a Family Crest Plaque, or Coat of Arms Shield – if you or a family member have knowledge or a sketch of your family Coat of Arms, we would need to have an indication as to what it may look like. Heraldry, being an exact science, still allows the Heraldic Artist some leeway in interpreting the blazon-of-arms and using their personal styles in depicting the various charges used in the heraldic language.
