Heraldic Collector's Items Catalogue

In this part of the Heraldry of the World site I try to make as completely as possible a catalogue of heraldic collector's items. This also includes numerous items which are not dealing with civic heraldry as does the main part of the site.

There are, of course, separate catalogues of all the different categories mentioned below. However, none of these deals specifically with heraldry, neither is any of these on-line available.

By lack of proper reference material, this catalogue probably will never be complete, but it is already by far the largest of its kind. Most of the material shown comes from my own collection and a bit from private collectors, who let me scan, or scanned, the material for me. Some images are taken from other sources, which are mentioned appropriately.

Any additions are of course welcome ! See also the Wanted page.

Private Collections

During the years we have obtained a number of collections of arms drawn/painted by private persons or items collected by others. These collections are shown below.

Other items in the HOTW collections

All the items in the different categories below have been collected during the years, but are not actively collected (unlike the collections listed above). Generally they have been donated by municipalities or individuals, or obtained from charity shops and second hand websites. And many souvenirs have been acquired during visits of the different places.

Heraldry of the World is a private site and maintained as a hobby, which takes a lot of time and effort (and costs).
