On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 534

The heraldic shield shows an oak tree and bears an inscription that may read: NOBLES POR NOBLES DE CARABACA LOS ROBLES. It is surmounted by a generalized crest consisting of a helmet and four plumes. The stylized floral motifs at the four corners of the field are derived from Spanish rugs of the preceding two centuries.
