  • Decorated with a broad border of harebell patterns and trailing flowers on a sablé-gilded ground. The harebells run spirally in two rows, each with petals facing the outer edges of the border. The flower trails emerge from the base of each harebell and wind between them. The borders are edged with a gilded band and the branch-like handle of the cover is naturalistically covered with gilded berries.
