SCA Peerage: The good, the bad, and the double-sided

1-person place setting: Pelican-LaurelFor Service, the Pelican. For Arts, the Laurel. For Chivalry and Martial Skill, The Knight. By Scadian popular request, we have now have a series for SCA Peerages: the Pelican, the Laurel and the white belt of the Knight--and combinations thereof, of course.

Or, for those of the twisted sense of humor, we have the "evil" versions SCA Peerages: the dark Pelican biting the heads off its own young, the Laurel bursting into flames and the white belt of the Knight strangling the Squire caught in its coils--and combinations thereof, of course. (Note: triple peer versions will have the Pelican-Laurel on one side and the Knight on the other. Also, mini cups only have space for one peerage.) Find Rose Pottery here.

Also available are the "two-faced" versions on cups: "good peer" on one side and "bad peer" on the other. Display how your peer is feeling today...

History & Documentation

The symbols of the three SCA peerage orders (Pelican for service, Laurel for arts and sciences, and Knight for combat and chivalry) also have interpretations outside the SCA: the Pelican in medieval times was thought to feed its young with its own blood and thus was a symbol of self-sacrifice and piety; the Laurel wreath, as worn by Apollo the Greek god of the arts, healing, & light, is even today a symbol of a master's degree. There are a number of symbols for knighthood, and here we incorporated two: a white belt with a Manx or Viking chain pattern on it.

Also available are Redwolf Brooches bearing the same designs:
Round Brooch, Pelican Round Brooch, Laurel Round Brooch, Pelican Laurel

Available via custom order is pottery which bears a heraldic devices in addition to the peerage symbol or symbols. In the case of the "evil" peerages, this has included changing the dead creatures in the pelican's nest, the coloration of the squire or pelican, etc. Some Examples are below:
