Hausmarke

Postby Jonathan Webster » 25 Jul 2014, 21:07

Does anyone have any information as regards hausmarke (English: 'house mark') arms, as used in Germany and Scandinavia? All I can seem to find relating to the subject is a brief mention in one of Carl von Volborth's books and the relevant wikipedia page.

There's a section on them in German in the Handbuch der Heraldik - Wappenfibel published by "Der Herold" Heraldry Society in Berlin. If you can read German, I could scan the pages and e-mail them.

Ok...I am semi-fluent in German, shame there aren't more English language sources though.
