Nicholas Goodison explains that three types of wing-figured vase were produced at Soho from about 1772. This vase, along with the model including a pedestal base – an example of which can be seen at Osterley – were the largest form of wing-figured vase. The first to be sold appears to have been bought by the Earl of Stamford on a visit to Soho early in 1772. Subsequently The Duke of Northumberland, the Earl of Sefton and a Mr. Thyne are all recorded as having purchased one, the latter being described as “purple stone” in the account book. The exceptional piece of blue john incorporated in the vase makes it a superlative example of Boulton’s output.
