This stunning bronze is superbly cast and has a superb gilt patina. The vase features egg and dart rim, bifurcated vinestock handles and the body is cast with masks of Bacchus and Hercules between two satyrs, with the pelt of the Nemean lion below, and raised on a circular spreading base with a fixed liner.
The attention to detail throughout this piece is second to none and this high quality bronze is made from the lost wax process 'cire perdue'.
In excellent condition. As an antique item its show signs of use commensurate with age, these minor condition issues are mentioned for accuracy and, as seen in the accompanying photographs, the bronze displays beautifully.
