Pair of Bronze Urns After Warwick Vases


Stock No.16081

A pair of late 19th century patinated bronze garniture urns cast as models of the Warwick vases. The pedestal bodies with lion pelt and mask-head decoration in high relief and elaborately entwined handles, each raised on a waisted circular fluted socle base, supported on stepped Belgian black marble square plinths, raised on paw feet.

English, c.1880.

Notes: The Warwick Vase was excavated from Hadrian's Villa at Tivoli in 1771 by Gavin Hamilton, and dates to the second century AD. Hamilton sold the vase to his nephew, the 2nd Earl of Warwick, who built a specially commissioned conservatory in the grounds of Warwick Castle to house it.
