East Sussex martlets coaster
Dimensions: 90mm x 110mm
Sussex’s distinctive county shield of six martlets has been in existence since 1611 and is today used as the Sussex county arms (featuring a blue background, yellow and blue representing West Sussex, and East Sussex represented with red). The distinctive martlets are mythical, heraldic birds and are depicted with feet stuck in the Weald clay.
This coaster is in the style of a heater heraldic shield created from hand-cut float glass and hand painted with yellow enamel martlets and a red East Sussex background. It is protected on the reverse with hand-cut felt.
