The Marital Arms of Lucy and Forster
The armorial bearings are those of the family of Lucy impaled with those of the family of Forster. These armorial bearings denote the marshalling of a marital coat showing on the dexter (the heraldic right on the left as you view the piece) the arms of the husband and on the sinister (the heraldic left on the right as you view it) the arms of the wife. They may be blazoned as follows:

Arms:
(on the dexter) Gules two lucies hauriant between five cross crosslets argent* (for Lucy)
(on the sinister) Argent on a chevron between three bugle horns sable stringed gules a pheon of the field (for Forster)

* Ordinarily the arms of Lucy depict three ‘lucies hauriant’ on a red field which is ‘semy of cross crosslets’ or ‘crusily’ field or even sometimes has a defined number of ‘cross crosslets’ (see Figure 1). Both lucies and cross crosslets being ‘argent’. It may be presumed that the lack of one ‘lucie’ could well be down an error by the artist.
