As the Finns are probably the most strict of all when it comes to the tincture "rule" I can only assume that the edge of the von Alfthan arms is not intended to be part of the arms but merely decoration.

Well at the time the Picture of the von Alfthan was painted the Tincture Rule was not as strict as it is today.
