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, helmet, crest (distinctive feature above the helmet), and mantling (cloak-like decoration behind a coat of arms). This shield has the charge (heraldic motif) of a gold ladder on a patterned blue field (ground). The crest is a pair of wings similarly charged. The mantling, in the form of wide densely curled leaves, is of the colors (both blue and gold). All is set against a circular damasked field within a plain border.
