The term “papellony” may refer to either a fur or a field treatment, as they are known in the Society. When blazoned, e.g., “argent papellony sable” (as in the first illustration), it’s a field treatment equivalent to scaly; this is the older usage, found in the arms of Sansuerre or Sancerre, c.1254 [Brault2 27; also see de Bara 55]. When blazoned “papellony argent and sable” (as in the second illustration), it’s a derivative of the vair furs, similar in appearance to plumetty [Woodward 72]. Because of the ambiguity in the term, it is best not used if an alternative term will work as well.
