    A monumental Regency stoneware urn, in the manner of the antique. This magnificent urn recalls the form of an Ancient Greek krater - a large vessel for mixing wine. The entire urn is dedicated to the God of Wine Bacchus (Dionysus), with a band of fruiting vines to the neck, underneath which is high-relief frieze depicting a Bacchic procession or thiasus, with revellers carrying cups of wine, bunches of grapes and the other trappings of a hedonistic feast. The serpents fashioned into handles are characteristic of Bacchic iconography and they are often associated with Bacchus, as Maenads - female followers of the God - wore snakes in their hair.

    This urn is unlike any other we have come across, but echoes the popularity of themes from classical antiquity, made even more popular by the phenomenon of the Grand Tour. The great engraver and antiquarian Giovanni Battista Piranesi even produced an engraved volume solely dedicated to the designs of urns in the antique style. He then manufactured urns in his Italian workshops. In England, the famous manufacturer Elizabeth Coade and designers such as Thomas Hope also produced urns in the antique manner for an eager public.

    The urn is made from a weather impervious stoneware, similar to the famous Coade stone.
    English c.1820.

    A stained and leaded glass window panel, possibly representing the paternal arms of the Grosvenor Crest, depicting a talbot dog atop a helm set in a field of multiple coloured glass sections held in a later stained pine frame. The quarterings include a crescent and star mark of cadency above the motto Virtus Non Stemma which translates as Valour Not Garland and is the Duke of Westminster's motto at his Eaton Hall Estate. English, 17th century and later.

    Provenance: By repute removed from a chapel on a Grosvenor Estate.

    Notes: The talbot dog, now extinct, was a type of hunting dog and probably the ancestor of the beagle or bloodhound and is often used in heraldry to represent a good-mannered hunting dog. The cadency marks the status of a younger branch of a family.
