Scaly (Period)

Scaly (Period)

Scaly is a field treatment, consisting of many semi-circles or lunes, covering the field.  The term is the Society’s translation of the French term écaillée; it is equivalent to the most common depiction of the papellony field [Woodward 726].  The treatment is found in the arms of von Tettenbach, 1605 [Siebmacher 85].
