Any information?

A friend of my grandfather found this item in a flea market in Île-de-France about 30 years ago.
We have established that it is a vessel for anointing oils (the inscription on the top reads “Oleum Infirmorum”) but we would like to know more about it’s history, or about the the crest engraved on it. Thanks.
