6) Gulli-Grenja­r (F) -- Resubmission -- Argent, a rat rampant within a tressure sable
(Newport, MI)
(name reg'd Mar '03)

Client wrote a letter of explaining that she missed the deadline for appeal because she was hospitalized. She wanted a tressure and not a border. She's enclosed the fee and wants to try again. This is the same blazon as before.

According to the Nov '02 ILOAR: "The device is being returned for redrawing. The “tressure” is not identifiable as such and looks more like a mini bordure, which doesn’t really exist. If the client wishes to submit a tressure, this needs to be correctly depicted on the emblazon. If she wishes to have a bordure, then this should be fed."
