Primary Description: 
Greyish cristallo with applied, enameled and gilt decoration, the foot a replacement. Bowl of ogee profile with flattened base, encircled by an overlapping rigaree band. Pedestal foot, of which only the upper part survives, with possibly two rough pontil marks on top of each other. The stump of the foot has been joined to a modern glass foot by means of a gilt-metal collar with leaf-shaped vertical prongs. The bowl is enameled with twice the same coat of arms: quarterly 1 and 4 sable, crowned lion rampant or, 1 guardant; 2 and 3 paly bendy azure and argent. Red border, heightened in yellow. Two heaumes with disproportionately large crests, each of a lion sejant, (1) with wings azure, argent and or, (2) between horns azure and argent, with projecting sprigs argent. Mantling (1) azure and argent, (2) sable and gules. Inbetween the arms the letters “H” and “L,” painted in yellow shaded with black. Below the rim runs a scale border of scratched gold with a dot of blue enamel in each scale, between rows of parti-colored dots, white and red.
