Description: Slightly domed, leather-covered wooden circular shield with decoration in oriental style painted in colour and partly with gold and silver plating. On the obverse central coat-of-arms cartouche, surrounded by rich arabesque and flower ornaments in gold, green, red and turquoise on a dark red background. The equally leather-covered reverse retains its original arm padding and remnants of the carrying straps. The shield body slightly warped, somewhat worm-ridden in places. The leather cover with isolated age cracks, minor flaws on the edge. Diameter 58 cm. Beautiful shield with well-preserved paintwork. The Venetian parade shields belonging to the trabant guard of Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau are mentioned in the inventory of the prince-pishop's palace as early as 1699. Approximately 70 of the initially mentioned 398 items can be found today in the collection of the Carolina-Augusteum-Museum in Salzburg. Further specimens are displayed, among others, in the collections of the Princes of Liechtenstein, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Art Institute in Chicago.
Condition Report: II -
Importantly, absentee bidders should note that purchases made using our absentee bid form, by either telephone or in writing, that shipping instructions must be indicated by ticking the box on the bid form. In the absence of this instruction we will automatically assume that the buyer will require Hermann Historica to ship on his / her behalf. The standard shipping charge will cover the costs of packing and postage, together with insurance against loss or damage in transit only. These charges will be recorded on the buyer`s invoice (the insurance premium calculated at 1% of the aggregate purchase figure)
If shipping costs are not recorded on the buyer´s invoice it means either that the buyer intends to collect purchases in person or that standard shipping is not possible. In the latter case this may be for reasons of the abnormal size, weight or fragility of the purchased property, it may also result from the specific application of legal requirements.
In this instance we shall obtain a freight quotation on behalf of the buyer. Upon subsequent receipt of confirmed instructions Hermann Historica shall be pleased to proceed with shipping.
Due to changed regulations it is unfortunately no longer possible to send any kind of firearms from Germany to foreign destinations by regular mail service. We will, if possible, organise international shipping through forwarding agents or specialised courier services, however, with the consequence of noticeably higher shipping costs.

Toutefois, nous essayons d'organiser ces envois par entreprises de transport ou services courrier spécialisés, mais conséquemment les frais d'envoi seront sensiblement plus élevés.
