17th century Heraldry Designs (1695)

Select images from the book Nouveau Livre de Differens Cartouches, Couronnes, Casques, Supports et Tenans – roughly translated as a New Book of Different Cartouches (the central oval), Crowns, Helmets, and both Animal and Human Supports – engraved by Charles Mavelot and published in 1695 in France. The book’s subtitle announces its practical use for “painters, sculptors, engravers, goldsmiths, weavers, embroiderers and others”.
