The submitter's name was registered on the December 2015 LoAR.

7: Dragonship Haven, Barony of -Resub Guild Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 1985, via the East.

Worshipful Company of Artificers

Consulting Herald: Agapios Cargos

The Order name Worshipful Company of Artificers was returned on the February 2016 East Kingdom Letter of Decision for lack of documentation. The naming pattern did not match any documented pattern for naming orders. It was recommended that the Barony resubmit the name as a guild name, which better matches the desired pattern.

Worshipful Company is a pattern seen in guild names in English. For example, the "worshipfull Company of Clothworkers" is mentioned at p. 93 of The Survey of London: Contayning the Orignall, Increase, Moderne Estate, and Government of that City, Methodically Set Downe (https://books.google.com/books?id=UONBAQAAMAAJ), published in 1633. The "worshipfull Company of Haberdashers" is mentioned at p. 103 of the same book.

The spelling worshipful is dated to 1460 in the Middle English Dictionary s.v. worshipful (adj.)

Artificer is defined in the Middle English Dictionary s.v. artificēr, -iēr (n.) as "(a) One who practices a craft or trade; craftsman, tradesman, workman; (b) (literary) artist; (c) a crafty person." The spelling artificer is dated to 1423 therein.

The Barony permits of Dragonship Haven to be added if needed to clear conflicts.

If this Guild name is registered, it should be associated with the Barony's previously-submitted badge (Fieldless) In saltire a pair of scissors and a smith's hammer argent.

Argent, a squirrel's mask sable, jessant-de-lys vert

Consulting Herald: Imigla Venture

This item is a resubmission. The identical device was returned on the March 2015 LoAR for redraw due to "violating SEAN A2C2 which states 'Elements must be drawn as identifiable.' Commenters had troubles identifying the head as that of a squirrel." It was also stated that "the use of jessant-de-lys with anything other than a lion's or leopard's head is a step from period practice."
