This stained glass pane features a rectangular coat of arms outlined in thick black, with an arch-shaped panel above it and an inverted arch-shaped panel below. The coat of arms contains a black shield outlined in gold, with thin silver curlicues and a diagonal gold line running from its top left corner to its bottom right. Curling black and gold mantling surrounds the shield. A black and gold knight’s helmet with a gold crown sits on top of the shield. Above the helmet are two black and gold trumpet-like instruments, each adorned with four black or gold spades. The coat of arms is set against a gold frame, with two gold columns on either side. The top and bottom panels are decorated with gold and white curlicues and leaves surrounding a central image, a golden flower in the bottom panel and a face wearing a golden crown in the top.
