For centuries it proudly hung high above of one of Great Yarmouth's oldest pubs. However, the coat of arms of the Kings Arms on Northgate Street has seen better days.
Carved from wood, it is thought to date as far back as the 1660s, and now the pub's landlord is hoping to restore it to its former glory.
Michael Pywell has launched an appeal to find expert care for the artefact, which he had to take down recently as a safety precaution.
He said: 'This is something I've wanted to do for some time, and we recently had to install scaffolding outside, so I decided this was the perfect time
'However, it isn't something just anybody can do. Not only is it a part of the pub's history, but also the history of the town. I want to find somebody who can help us restore it and get it back where it belongs.'
