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.
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.
