Breast distilling three gouts (Period)

Breast distilling three gouts (Period)

A breast is an organ that produces milk for suckling.  In heraldry, the usual breast is the human (woman’s) breast, sometimes explicitly blazoned so.  It’s a period charge, found in the canting arms (from the colloquial “dug”) of Dodge, 1531 [Dennys 144].  The breast must always be depicted distilling gouts, to distinguish it from a roundel; Society rulings require the gouts to have some contrast (i.e., not be the same tincture) as their breast.
