The heraldic shield is within a cartouche carved with flamboyant scrolling, perfectly proportioned. The supporters to each side consist of a pair of naked cherubs, each seated on a heraldic beast: a lion on one side, and unicorn on the other. It was re-sited in 1961.

Inscription description

slate plaque: These armorial bearings, fashioned by Thomas Ricketts in 1745, look somewhat out of place on this modern building at the corner of Three Cocks Lane and Westgate Street in central Gloucester. They adorned the old Booth Hall until 1957 and were erected here in 1961.
