Weinleiter bendwise (Period)

Weinleiter bendwise (Period)

A weinleiter is a handbarrow for carrying wine barrels, consisting of two long poles with two crosspieces.  It’s a period charge, found in the arms of Vasant, 1605 [Siebmacher 106].  It doesn’t seem to have a default orientation; the illustration shows a weinleiter bendwise.

Tamara Samuilova of Thamesreach bears as a badge:  A weinleiter bendwise vert.
