I've been digging around looking for a similar plaque or cresting, but so far have nothing. Haven't seen a plaque with that shape before... to the best of my recollection. Also, the small medallion that hangs down from the portal is quite unusual.

I suspect someone can identify the portal and plaque in the photograph.
