Nice arms, very nicely emblazoned!

Interesting blazon - per pile reversed - don't think I've seen this terminology before. I likely would have said Per Chevron throughout, but per pile reversed does emphasize the acute angle better than the more variable per chevron throughout. Good choice of terms!

Friar says: "When a single pile issues from base (i.e. reversed or transposed) it should always be depicted in relief and narrower than the per chevron partition with which it may be confused." Boutell merely says that a pile may issue from the base, which is less helpful. I don't always go along with Friar, but in this case the "should be narrower" part seems sensible. The "in relief" bit only really works if the whole emblazonment is in relief, which Mr Z's is.

Personally, I would blazon Mr Z's arms: Or on a Pile inverted Vert a Scroll Argent with seal pendant (of the first), in chief two Maunches Gules. Though, since the maunches are arguably not in chief one could even say: Or between two Maunches Gules on a Pile inverted Vert a Scroll Argent with seal pendant (of the first).
