Alexander Nisbet, schema

Bordure invected and bordure engrailed.

Painting inspired in [Nisbet, A.; 1816; page 21, pictures 1 and 2], but with the 3 boar's heads of Alexander Nisbet within the 2nd bordure invected.

Blazon writen by the College of Arms for the coat of arms of Michael John Huxley-Evans «Per fess nebuly Sable and Ermine in chief a Rose Argent barbed and seeded proper within a wreath of Thorns Or in base three Boar's Heads erased Sable armed Or.», but to differentiate from the «armed» of the claws, I prefer «tusked» to «armed» for the defenses/tusks of the boar's heads.


Blazon keywords: Bordure, Invected, Engrailed, Head and Boar.
