The panel is carved with an armorial device, possibly a canting arms represting the bearer’s name in a rebus. At the top is a ‘lion statant sinister or contourné’ – a lion standing with all four feet on the ground, with forepaws together. This posture is more frequent in crests than in charges on shields. The lion’s position is ‘sinister’ or ‘contourné’, being turned to face the viewer’s right, and it has a chain round its neck. It is standing on a tun, carved with the initials ‘TK’, which is positioned above two pairs of cornucopia-shaped and foliate scrolls.
