These wine-krater vases are embellished with vine-tied satyr's-mask handles that correspond to a pattern for an ormolu ice-pail in the French manner preserved in the early 1770s archives of Messrs. Boulton and Fothergill of Birmingham (N. Goodison, The Work of Matthew Boulton, London, 1974, fig. 163, no. N). The glass's lozenge-jewelled ribbons reflect the fashion for rich cutting popularised in the early 19th Century by Parisian firms such as Baccarat, Launay and Hautin et Cie. A pair of glass table wine-coolers of similar campana vase form of circa 1825 are illustrated in R. Butler and G. Walkling, The Book of Wine Antiques, Woodbridge, 1986, p. 123, pl. 115.
