This roundel displays an armorial achievement – a full display of the heraldic symbols for a member of a noble family. These elements comprise a shield, helmets, crests, and mantling. This shield has two quarters with the charge of paired black cocks on a gold field, and two quarters with the charge of a gold lion passant above a red and white barry . The crests are a black half-cock on a coronet, left, and a gold half-lion, right. The mantling, in the form of densely curled animal furs, is of the colors (black with gold, and red with white). All is set against a circular damasked field within a plain border.
