This vase is referred to in the 4 November 1809 inventory of Warwick Castle, Warwickshire, which describes in the Yellow Bedroom ‘A Derbyshire Pedestal and urn with four branches’. This item is further mentioned in a December 1924 inventory entitled ‘Articles in Warwick Castle of National or Historical interest’, which lists in the Cedar Drawing Room a ‘20 in. Ormolu mounted Blue John Vase and Cover surmounted by a brass knob, two terminal female figures supporting two light candelabra, on four knob feet.’
The blue john lid has been replaced at some stage, but follows faithfully the original pattern by Matthew Boulton.
Price: £100,000 +
