[Esct comment: I have no idea what the sable thingy on his device is supposed to be, though I infer that the client uses it as some sort of trademark (he included his business card). The client did not provide a blazon for it either, so no clues there. Unless someone knows what that is and if it’s a period charge then the device must be returned for unidentifiability.]
