What does this mean?

Hi Lindsay,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
I can't make out the name on the placard either and have looked quite extensively online for other examples of that winged lion mark- VARRTAN? What does it look like to you?
I've valued it without an attribution; if we can work that out, the value would likely go up.
