Matthew Boulton had nine different medallions available for this type of candle vase. Most pairs of vases have repeated medallions, but there is only one other pair of candle vases of this type known that also features eight different medallions; this pair is now in a private collection.
The medallions are described by Nicholas Goodison as (vase one, from left to right): Achilles Victorious, Neptune, Aesculapius or Moses, Filial Piety, and (vase two, from left to right): Venus Victorious, Pomona, Hygieia or Peace, Heroic Figure.
