Decorative Shields

A shield was used for more than just blocking attacks and bashing your opponents with a well-timed strike. Some featured rich designs that made them perfect as displays in the highest of the great, lordly halls. And in this section of Dark Knight Armoury, you will find a number of brilliant decorative shields that are perfect for decorating your halls. Given that many knights and warriors on the field of battle adorned their shield with personal crests, lordly symbols, and various heraldries, it stands to reason that many shields were stunning in their appearance. Thus, many shields could have doubled over as decorations in their wielders halls and castles, and many likely did, as there was no better way to show off ones loyalty and ones skill in battle then to hang arms in your home. Our decorative shields feature a wide array of designs, ranging from simple embossing and coloration to the heraldries and seals that hail back to ancient kings of the medieval era, like Richard the Lion Heart, Emperor Charlemagne, Charles V, and more. Some even feature the heraldries of legendary figures, like King Arthur, or famous groups, like the Knights Templar or the Knights Hospitaller. We even offer a few decorative shields that go back even further than the medieval ages, allowing you to display the shields of the ancient Romans or the fearsome Spartans in your own home! Most of our decorative display shields are crafted from quality metal, which all but ensures the look and feel of each piece. Decorative shields are perfect for medieval enthusiasts who really want to show off their love for the era and the age, and they are also a particularly nice choice for those individuals who really want to show off a new decoration in the comforts of their home or office.
