Note: An identical pair of perfume burners was in the well-documented Leidesdorf collection in New York. A single perfume burner of the same design, originally from the Duchess of Manchester, was formerly in the Mulliner collection. A further identical pair mounted on onyx was supplied by Bolton in 1771 to Catherine the Great of Russia and is now in the Hermitage Collection in St. Petersburg.
The pierced lids are of later date.
