Pair of Jamb Reproduction Medici Urns of Impressive Scale

About

The Campana shaped urn with egg and dart and bead moulded flared rim, the body carved with the legend of Iphigenia and with fluted, leaf carved scrolled handles supported by Bacchic masks, the turned and fluted socle with a carved collar. Rome’s ancient ruins were a source of inspiration during the late 18th century. Giovanni Battista Piranesi recorded this vase and published it in 1762 along with his other drawings; The Medici urn, now in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence and the Borghese urn, in the Louvre in Paris, forms the most influential pair of vases from antiquity.
