Description:A typical crest of arms, with a lion and unicorn leaning on a shield, and standing on a banner with the motto ' We Lead. Others Follow'. Underneath the scroll are plaques for G. Orton & Sons and C.J. Spooner. The work is thought to have been a commission by Worthingtons to celebrate the coronation of Edward VII in 1902. It was apparently used as a decoration on the Worthington offices, although it is not visible in the other picture celebrating this occasion.
