Lot Essay

The present vase is modelled on the antique Roman stone original excavated near Tivoli in 1771 and now in The Burrell Collection, Glasgow. Acquired in the 18th century by the Earl of Warwick from whom it takes its name, the vase became very popular as a antique form and was copied in silver, bronze, marble and by a variety of porcelain manufacturers.
