My wife and I started watching Downton Abbey last year and couldn't wait for season 2. Inspired by all the shows fascinating storylines and style, I imagined a Grantham family crest that plays on facets of the show.
The fantastic hats from the show's time period replace the traditional helmet at the top, along with a quote form the Dowager Countess, "What is a weekend?" translated into Latin of course! A life preserver from the Titantic represents the male heir that perished. A maid and valet hold everything together. I created Victorian era paper silhouettes to represent the three Crawley daughters. This led to creating portraits for each family member.
Lastly, I couldn't forget our most favorite Downton Characters, Anna and Mr. Bates.
