I don't think it is a mosaic as such, it might be made up of pre-formed sections. Even then the joints look pretty fine, the next time I see my two Italian friends at Birmingham Tile & Mosaic I will ask their opinion because if its mosaic then I bet one of their relations did it.

Ok Phil, I wasn't really saying it was made from tiny bits, I was trying to indicate that is was inlaid and not just on the surface, sometimes the words don't erm..... arrive, pop up, come to me when I need them. I do have some other shots but I don't expect them to reveal anything more other than the fact that the area was cordoned off and a sign describing the origins of the Arms was placed in front of it.

So it might well be the sort of thing your Italians could have been called in to do as I doubt there would be many people about who were skilled in that sort of thing.
I took a small number of shots inside the building when I was in there in 2001, removing some electronic controls for BCC. Mostly of interest to myself but there are a few architectural details. I wish I had taken it seriously and photographed the entire building. I had free run of it for a whole day, if not two, I don't quite remember. I may be able to put them in the photo gallery if I can edit out my mate.

Anyway, the Coat of Arms will still be in the floor, even if it is now a hotel.

Lyn, remember when you used to see lots of women with that horrible red marking on one side of their legs due to sitting to close to the fire.
My mate fell asleep after a drinking session, in front of the fire and it burned his leg so badly through his trousers he had to have a skin graft.
