This solid silver bowl has a lid decorated with two horns of plenty that meet to form a ring, the latter is placed on a rosette that is applied to the lid, it is chased and openwork lyres and laurel branches. On each side is a handle decorated with the head of Hermes wearing a winged helmet, the edge of the lid is surrounded by a frieze of water leaves and the edge of the foot of a frieze of oak leaves. The coat of arms on the lid presents on the blazon, a crown surmounted by a chevron, four stars and a crescent moon, the whole is topped by a helmet and flanked on both sides by an eagle and a lion. The different marks struck on this cup are, the Parisian silversmiths mark used from 1793, a head of Michelangelo in force from 1819 to 1838 and a head of minerva affixed probably during a census. The hallmark is that of S.J. Dupezard, registered in 1809, whose goldsmith's shop was located in 1811 37 rue de la Bucherie, in 1813 5 rue de la Vieille Draperie and in 1822 4 rue du Mouton.
Two small shocks are to be noted on the lid.
