What you are referring to as scrolls is mantling. It is what a knight wore over his helmet to help keep the sun's rays off the metal. This mantling is gold, lined with ermine, which is associated with nobility. There's also an ermine torse, which was a twisted ring of material that held the mantling to the helmet.
Oh, my! I love this royal lion. What a great find. Thanks, Karen. And interesting to know about the mantling and knight's helmet, Anonymous.

Thank you so much for these images through out the days. It is so nice to get images that aren't cutesy wootsy and have a more adult content. This site is so relevant to what I need. Thank you so much for sharing,Theresa
