Middle LoI - 2013-04-29

This item was on the 07-2013 LoAR

3: Eginolf von Basel - New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2005, via the Middle

Bendy gules and azure, a wolf's head to sinister erased Or maintaining in its mouth an egg argent.

Old Item: Bendy Or and azure, a wolf's head erased ululant contourny gules maintaining in its mouth an egg argent, on a chief Or three eagles gules., to be retained as a badge.

Submitted for an attested pattern of red and blue bendy field. The descriptions of the included images is below the quoted text.

Jennifer Smith (via SCA Heraldry Chat): "If you want to stick to German, you can cite the 2-3 barry, chevronny, checky and paly that are all red+blue, and then find *any other* color combination of bendy (or something that includes bendy, like paly bendy), to prove that the Germans did in fact use that field division. Then you've got proof of the field division AND red&blue used on other fields sliced into a similar number of pieces."

Image #1: 5 examples of multiply divided fields of red and blue from Siebmacher's Wappenbuch.

Image #2: Antol Tirol's Wappenbuch, 1540. 125r in base paly gules and azure.

Image #3: An Italian example: (Stemmario?) Trivulziano: "Induno: bendy azure & gules... P180" c. 1470-1480.

Image #4: Siebmacher Wappenbuch example of a regular bendy field (or red and white).

An English example in text: From "The Visitation of Kent" by John Philipot. 1898. "From 1619: Hendley: 'Quarterly 1 and 4: Paly bendy azure and gules, eight martlets in orle, three, two and three, Or...'"
