Rated 5 out of 5 by atlantasteve authentic looking
I was first hesitant to buy this shield as I feared it would look plastic in appearance. It does not. It looks like the real thing. The colors are antiqued enough to show off a real looking coat of arms shield. I get many compliments on this Victoria shield. It is easy to hang and I believe is made out of a better material than some of the other shileds I have purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsGarnett Collectable Victorian Souvenir. Overall, pleased with it.
This is a hollow ceramic copy, not metal. It says 'made in china'. However, it is true to the heraldic standard of the reign of Queen Victoria of England, very collectable for that reason, certainly. The gilded paint is quite nice. It was easy to hang. If you step away from it, the eye is easily fooled as to what it is made of. Nice sort of thing to put over your desk. Dont drop it though, it might break! Would make a great gift to a freind or relative. Sure to be a conversation starter! It was well packaged in styrofoam, very light to carry #because its hollow#, the photo is a close match to the article.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Richard7310 Exquisite, As Always
The colors on mine are the same hues, but more drab, and the gold more antiqued, combining to give it a highly-desirable, aged appearance. An instant antique sure to become a family heirloom. The back features two keyhole hangers, so as not to swing crooked, and two, mounted, rubbers pads to protect the wall. Screws and anchors also included, as usual.
