Norwich Insurance Plaque, lead
We are currently closed for the Spring Season and will reopen the Showroom in the Summer at our new location. Thank you and stay tuned!
Norwich Insurance Plaque in lead showing one's castle with a lion protector. In the 18th and 19th centuries, these were hung on the exterior of a house after the owner paid for an insurance policy. Only when the firemen saw the plaque, would they put the fire out!
