Hand and Bordure

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Argent, a sinister hand couped at the wrist and erected gules, within a bordure azure. BORDURE or BORDER. This was the most ancient difference in coats of arms, to distinguish different branches of the same family. It is a border round the edge of the shield. Its situation is always the same; but the inner edge may be varied.” -Hall, 1862


Hall, Arthur The Manual of Heraldry (London, England: J. S. Virtue & Co., 1862)
