Domed oven (Period)

Domed oven (Period)

An oven is an enclosed, heated chamber, used to bake or roast food.  Ovens were found in many forms in period; the form documented in period heraldry is specified as a “domed oven”, and is found in the arms of Stubenwid, c.1340 [Zurich 267].  The circular air vents are part of the definition of the charge, and are not considered tertiary charges.  For related charges, see athanor.
