The Royal Arms in use today have evolved over nine centuries. The Royal Arms of England were first used by Richard the Lionheart and remained in use on their own until 1340 when King Edward III quartered them with the ancient Royal Arms of France to symbolise his claim to the French throne. Henry IV changed the French quarter and they remained in this form until the reign of James I, who quartered them with the arms of Scotland and the harp of Ireland. The Hanoverian monarchs, who followed the house of Stuart, included in their arms references to their German possessions. Queen Victoria adopted a simplified form of the Royal Arms which remain to this day.

The crown is the symbol of monarchy and sovereignty and as such has appeared in various styles in royal heraldry. It was not until the reign of Charles II that we see the heraldic crown we are familiar with today, which is based on St Edwards crown. The Latin translation around the Coat of Arms reads HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE (Shame be to him who evil thinks).

This beautiful tapestry is woven on a jacquard loom by skilled weavers, keeping alive the centuries old tradition of tapestry manufacturing from generation to generation. This tapestry is fully lined incorporating a sleeve along the top for hanging with a Hines hanging rod. Alternatively, this tapestry can be hung with a wooden batten which is a concealed method of hanging.

How to hang a tapestry

Tapestries are very simple to hang in your home.  There are a two options for you to choose from which are explained below.

Decorative Tapestry Hanging Rod

Choose from two finial options, Black Spear or Brass Fleur de Lys to hang your tapestry.  Simply slide your hanging rod through the rod pocket that is sewn along the top edge of the back of the tapestry so that the finials and some of the black bar is showing either side.  (You can have as much or as little of the back bar as you wish showing as the hanging rods are telescopic).

Once you are happy with where you want the tapestry to hang, mark on the wall through the eyelets on each finial where you need to drill the wall.  Then simply drill and plug both holes and then screw your tapestry to the wall.

Hines tapestry hanging rods are specially designed to be flush-mounted to the wall securing the tapestry in the best way possible to ensure that it looks great for years to come.

Obscure Wooden Batten

If you would rather fix your tapestry to the wall without any decorative rod you need to select a wooden batten when adding your tapestry to the basket.  Each batten is cut to size specifically for your tapestry and works on the same principle as a decorative hanging rod with a pre-drilled hole at each end to fix to the wall.

All decorative hanging rods and wooden battens from Hines come with screws and plugs and a set of instructions how to fit to your wall.
