Middle LoI - 2014-11-26

This item was on the 02-2015 LoAR

5: Eginolf von Basel - Resub Device Change

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

Per fess gules and bendy gules and azure, in chief 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.

This is a resub for Eginolf von Basel. His arms were returned on 07-2013 LoAR and can be found in OSCAR here:

Eginolf von Basel. Device change. Bendy azure and gules, a wolf's head contourny erased Or maintaining in its mouth an egg argent.

While the submitter provided sufficient documentation for this low-contrast multiply-divided field, the documentation was not sufficient for the combination of this field with a primary charge partially obscuring it. Therefore we must reluctantly return it for insufficient documentation of an Individually Attested Pattern.

This device is also returned for conflict with the device of Wulfgar der Krieger, Gyronny of six palewise sable and argent, a wolf's head erased contourny Or. There is one DC for the change in field, but nothing for the maintained egg.

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...'"
