9: Roben Dunlop -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of August 08, 2018 as submitted.

Argent, a brown horse rampant maintaining a leather flask proper, an orle of roses gules

Submitters previous device was on the LoAR of November 2018.

This device is returned for lack of identifiability of the tertiary charge. Commenters were unanimous in reporting their difficulty in recognizing the tertiary charge as an apple, with some not noticing that the maintained flask was charged at all.

This device is also returned for lack of documentation for the practice of charging a held charge that is not a means of heraldic display such as an escutcheon or banner. Absent such documentation, this practice will not be allowed, due in large part to issues with identification as described above.

This redraw addresses the reasons for the return.

This is a period flask, as shown in the Online PicDic. http://mistholme.com/?s=flask
