Écuelle :
In Eighteenth-Century France, a small individual covered standing bowl, essentially an individual tureen with a stand, was called an Écuelle, the stand a Plateaux. It could be lifted by its twin handles and drunk from directly. They were made for eating broths (Bouillons) or soups (Potages). They were not used at the dinner table but in the bedroom or boudoir.
