The upper right and bottom left quarters of the coat of arms each contain a chevron and three balls (one of the balls in the upper right quarter being obscured by the drapery of a surrounding figure); the upper left and lower right quarters each contain three fleurs-de-lis and a six-pointed star. There is an allegorical figure to each side of the coat-of-arms, and a cupid above. The cupid and the left allegorical figure are each holding up the end of a banderole. There are no inscriptions whatsoever on the plate.
