The oval, fluted lapis bowl has a silver-gilt rim cast and chased with strapwork and foliage. The two handles are formed as snakes and a heron's head gorged with a collar flory, a fish in its beak. The gently domed lapis cover has a silver-gilt border cast and chased with trefoils, and an oval mount with a replacement finial in the form of a vase filled with fruit.
