The Mascort Foundation presents 200 ceramic pieces from the 14th to 18th century featuring royal, noble, ecclesiastical and civil heraldic motifs from both collections. Since its emergence in the 12th century, heraldry has been used across the social strata throughout Europe. Following strict rules of composition, heraldic shields or coats of arms have fulfilled a triple function: as a symbol of identity; as a mark of position or possession, and as an ornamental element.

The exhibition is completed with a range of artistic pieces that serve as an example of the rich variety of applications relating to heraldry and ceramics.
