Of oval form on a spreading pedestal foot with cast, applied, and chased rocaille ornament; two sculptural foliate handles and removable silver-plated liner. Armorial-engraved shields on either side with the motto Dors je Vielle.
The coat-of-arms are those of Barons Hulod (Hulot) of Nancy. A member of this family General Etienne Hulot (1774-1850) has his name engraved on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. The fictitious Baron D’Hulot D’Ervy from Honoré de Balzac’s La Cousine Bette, is based on a number of real members of the family.
