The Grand Tour, taken by young gentlemen and many artists from the middle of 17th century, and with Italy as its principle destination, gave rise to the fashion for all things classical in art, architecture and the applied arts. The great houses and gardens of Britain could now be built to designs after Andrea Palladio and furnished in keeping with this developing fashion. The Wanstead House Urn with its theme of Bacchus and Ariadne, carved from white Carrara marble by Laurent Delvaux, is closed at the rim in a similar way to these urns; a painting on copper, PUTTI ENACTING A BACCHANALIAN SCENE by "Octavo Rene" (Otto van Veen) in the Green Closet at Ham House, Richmond-upon-Thames, is similar to the designs around the bodies of these urns.
English circa 1820.
