Very nice. The first noblearmiger(François, ridder Glorieux) is a composer -- I wonder if the musical passage on the fess is from one of his works. Whether it is or not, it would be interesting to see how it's blazoned.

Although the "gas bracket" base for supporters was discarded in England and Scotland many decades ago, it appears to still be the norm in Belgium.

Yes indeed it would be interesting to see the blason of the musical Notes. Ridder is by the Way the Flemish version of Knight the French version of cause beeing Chevalier.
