A pattern for an oval cistern, with ring-bearing lion-masks hung from a ribbon-guilloche, featured in The Works in Architecture of Robert and James Adam, 1773-79, (vol. II, no. 2, pl. VIII). The pattern for the festive husk-festooned bacchic satyr-masks, featured in table designs of the later 1760s attributed to Thomas Chippendale (d.1779). It was executed in ormolu for a pair of cisterns provided by Chippendale for the dining-room at Harewood House, Yorkshire, which had been designed for Edwin Lascelles (d.1795) by Robert Adam (d.1792). The 1795 inventory of this dining-room included 'One Oval Wine Keeper with brass ornaments' (C. Gilbert, The Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale, London, 1978, vol. I, p. 201 and vol. II, figs. 486 and 125).
