Long Description:
Interesting and well-preserved coat of arms, carved in the stone - is hanging above main entrance to the Municipal museum of Bratislava in the Old Townhall gallery.

Diagonally symmetrical field depicts historical Slavic symbols like lion and three linden leaves, together with quite strange fish(?) bone. Smaller, inner field consists of 4 points, showing a dog and wheel. Coat of arms is supplemented by crown on the top.

Okay, that was my attempt for the blazon due to the fact, that I failed to google some relevant heraldical information about Johann Heinrich, 17 Graff V Kollonitz - aristocratic name written around the coat of arms.
Possibly, it can belong to this person: link.
Zaujimavy a dobre zachovaly kamenny erb - patriaci zrejme aristokratickemu rodu - mozete najst nad vchodom do Muzea Mesta Bratislava na nadvori Starej Radnice.

Na diagonalne symetrickom poli su zobrazene slovanske symboly ako lev a lipove listky, doplnene o cudnu, asi rybaciu kost. Vnutorna cast erbu, rozdelena na 4 casti, vyobrazuje psa a koleso. Erb je na vrchu doplneny o kralovsku korunu.

Tolko moj pokus o opisanie heraldickych nalezitosti, nakolko som sa na webe nedopatral k relevantnym informaciam a suvislostiam. Po obvode erbu je vyryty napis Johann Heinrich, 17 Graff V Kollonitz, cize znak moze patrit tejto osobe: link.
