Each vase retains the original gilding. The lids are reversible, turning each lidded vase into a candlestick. The drawing for the vase can be found in Boulton and Fothergill’s ‘Pattern Book I’.
This pair of vases is one of only a handful of pairs known to exist. Two pairs are in a collection in Ireland, and one is in a collection in California, USA.
