SCA blazoning style starts it as "(Fieldless) A ..."

Disconnected pieces are not registerable in fieldless designs.  (The
exceptions are charges which are defined as being separate pieces.
The two I know about are the cross of Jerusalem, which is actually 5
crosses, and the ermine spot, which is often (though not invariably)
depicted disconnected.)

Personally, I haven't looked at enough period badges to be able to
say.  A knot within and conjoined to a harp doesn't feel periodlike to
me, so the tinctures aren't so much of an issue.
