Description and Details 

We are delighted to offer this pair of exceptional solid silver Warwick Vases. The pair feature practically identical designs, shapes and proportions, however, the maker and year of make are separate. One is made by Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co Ltd of Regent Street in London, 1908 whilst the other is made by George Edward & Sons in London, 1921.

Warwick vases are undoubtedly magnificent both to the novice and trained eye with an unparalleled presence, aura of importance and overall design to match its historic interest.

Solid Silver Warwick Vase
A quick search of "Warwick Vase" will result with a plethora of information and details regarding its origin, history and story, however, for your ease of reading, we have summarised the background of this monumental and symbolic piece:

The original Warwick Vase is was an ancient Roman Vase with Bacchic embellishments made from marble. It was originally discovered around 1771 in fragments by a Scottish art dealer named Gavin Hamilton who was in Rome at the time. Gavin Hamilton then proceeded to sell the fragments to Sir William Hamilton - British envoy at the court of Naples.

The vase was eventually restored by Sir William Hamilton and was passed to the collection of Hamilton's nephew, George Greville - the 2nd Earl of Warwick. Greville at first placed it on his lawn at Warwick Castle but later on, had a special greenhouse made in order to preserve the artefact. 

As such, this impressive vase became to be known as the "Warwick Vase" - Today, the original Vase rests at the Burrell Collection in Glasgow.

The Warwick Vase was an iconic and influential piece in the early 19th century which eventually resulted in vase being made in porcelain, bronze or silver.

As a result, today, we have the great delight of offering the opportunity to acquire this wonderful pair of solid silver Warwick Vases for your own personal collection, display or interior decor.

The vases are decorated heavily with intricate applied-cast and chased Bacchic figures, a band of grape vines beneath the rim and multiple acanthus leaves stemming from the base. 

Additionally, the body of the vase is embellished with two lions' pelts - though it may be slightly difficult to see, the pelt rests under all the applied embellishments and the lion's head rests underneath the central figures' head whilst its arms/paws are splayed to both sides.

The bowls also features its iconic and magnificent bifurcated handles in the form of fennel stalks. The vases are supported by a thick neck that terminates with a square base that allows for a stable and sturdy display should you wish to place some items within.  

Whilst the vases are impressive and an icon on their own as a display piece, they can equally be used for practical usage for storing fruits, bottles or any item of your choice that you see fit as a complement to your interior and display.
