Descriptive Notes
 

The inscription around the edge of the seal reads "Sigil.abbatisse in Winhusen." The abbess appears beneath a Gothic-style triple arch with a lily in her right hand and a censor in her left hand. Above the Gothic arch appears a male figure wearing a crown and a female saint, (perhaps depicting a crowned Christ and Virgin Mary).
