Ancien bouclier Je Maintiendrai (1) - Laiton
Pays-Bas - 1900-1910

Antiques Je Maintiendrai brass shield 11x8.5cm that is painted over, still old layers of paint from about 1900 - 1910. It has the same size as the Je Maintiendrai image on PTT mailboxes from that time. They were poured into the mold, this shield had an application where it had to be screwed on, loose.

Je Maintiendrai (Dutch: I will maintain) has been the motto of the Netherlands since 1815. This is actually the motto of the House of Oranje-Nassau, the family of William of Orange, who inherited the Principality of Orange through the legacy of René of Chalon. Originally the spell was Je Maintiendrai Chalon, but Willem changed it to Je Maintiendrai Nassau. After a while, he omitted ‘Nassau’ thus it became simply “Je Maintiendrai”.

The shield will be well packaged and shipped via registered mail to the buyer.
