Antique 19th Century Grand Tour Cabinet Size Gilt Bronze Warwick Vase or Urn

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A diminutive, cabinet size gilt bronze Warwick vase.

The twin handled urn form vase is perfectly scaled for the desk or curio cabinet.

This vase is modeled after the ancient marble vase discovered in Hadrian's Villa, which is now housed in the Burrell collection in Glasgow, Scotland. The discovery of the original vase caused a wild sensation in the late 18th century, and the Warwick vase form has remained fashionable ever since.

Mounted on a rouge marble base.

Measures: Width circa 6 1/2 in.

Items purchased from David Sterner Antiques must delight you. Purchases may be returned for any reason for a period of 7 days.
