Recognizing a coat of arms
Query:
Can anyone help me in recognizing a coat of arms painted in an incunable (The Hague, KB, 169 D 14, fol. a2 r)? Thank you in advance for your help.

Description:
Coat of arms in a horse-head shaped shield: azure, three torches (or candlesticks) or, lighted gules; in chief or an eagle sable, crowned or.
The chief seems bigger than usual, so another possible description would be: per fess, the first or, an eagle sable crowned or; the second azure, three torches (or candlesticks) or, lighted gules.
Some letters on the sides of the coat of arms: I. B. C.

As far as I could find, some French families had a very similar coat of arms, except for the chief, as for instance family De la Fare: http://jean.gallian.free.fr/comm2/l/lafare.html (second group of pictures).
