Nothing quite attracts the eye like a grand shield hung over your mantle. But for those who do not have room for a full sized shield, all is not lost, because this Mini Toledo Shield has all the detail of its larger cousin, at a fraction of the size! Patterned after the shields of the age, this impressive little replica has a stylized triangular shape that harkens back to the kite shields and heater shields that knights and warriors of all sorts would have favored when marching into battle. This miniature shield is crafted in steel and features the coat of arms of the city of Toledo. Found in Spain, Toledo has had a long history of being a center for steel-crafts, and historically, its weapons, particularly its swords, were highly valued and sought after. The shield features a halved field, with one side being a vibrant blue while the other side is a deep red. Decorating the four main corners of the shield (three main for the triangle and a curve at the top) are fleur de lis emblems, while the center of the shield features a two headed heraldic eagle with its wings and talons spread, while a smaller shield sits over its chest, adorned with smaller symbols traditionally associated with Toledo. The shield is ideally suited for hanging on the wall or decorating with, especially when you have a limited amount of space to work with but still want that historic or medieval flare. The shield measures approximately 11.25 inches tall and weighs in at about 12 ounces. If you are looking for the ideal way to include a little bit of medieval style in your decor, then look no further than this miniature shield. And if you know someone who wants to do the same, you are in luck, because this Mini Toledo Shield works wonderfully as a gift to that special someone, too!
