This household name uses the pattern "Heraldic Depictions: Charges" from the article Inn Signs and House Names in 15th Century Paris by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith). Examples using this pattern include hostel de la Nasse, maison de la Couronne, and l'enseigne de l'Estoille. http://medievalscotland.org/jes/ParisInnHouseNames/

Submitter claims Lingua Anglica for the designator.

The previous iteration of this badge (Fieldless) A man genuant vested of a kilt maintaining a stylus and tablet Or (image 1) was returned by Laurel on the Oct 2017 letter with the following comments:

This badge is returned for lack of documentation for the submitted posture. The posture "genuant" in SCA heraldry, last registered in 2009, is a bipedal posture where the legs are set at right angles, with the body resting on one knee and the foot of the other leg planted in front of the body, kneeling as in presentation. This posture, on the other hand, has the figure seated with one foot tucked entirely beneath him and the other half-raised, his arms resting on the raised knee. No evidence was presented and none could be found that this posture is found in period heraldry, and so must be returned.

This badge is also returned for the maintained charges in an unblazonable orientation. The tablet and stylus are both halfway between fesswise and bendwise/bendwise sinister. As maintained charges count for difference, their orientation must be blazonable.
