I do not know what this orb stands for (I am absolutely no fan of whatever religion). But:
Johann Philipp von Lamberg (he was never King of Augsburg, because at Augsburg there has never been a king!!) was, although Duke and Bishop, also a politician and diplomat. 1697 he went to Warschau/PL as an imperial ambassador, where he propelled the election of August, the Archduke of Saxony to king of Poland. In Juli 1700 he was promoted into the rank of a cardinal by pope Innozenz XII.
Perhaps this orb has something to do with his rank as cardinal?
