A cartouche design is usually a carved decoration or drawing in the shape of an oval shield or scroll with rolled-up ends, which was used in architecture and decorative art ornamentally or bearing an inscription. Designs like these are rarely used today, but we hope that those who do need them will be thrilled to find this collection of quality-drawn cartouche designs.
