Frying pan (Period)

A frying pan is a flat, shallow metal vessel on a long handle, used for cooking food over a fire; it may also be termed a “skillet”.  It’s a period charge, found in the arms of von Scever or Schever, c.1370 [Gelre 109], and the canting arms [Italian padella] of dala Padela, mid-15th C. [Triv 282].  The illustration is taken from Gelre.  The frying pan is palewise, handle to base, by default.  For related charges, see pot.

Æduin of Skye bears as a badge:  A frying pan bendwise sable.

Musa-Æstriþ Þorvalðzdottir bears:  Per bend sinister argent and azure, a frying pan palewise sable.
