Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Matthew Boulton originally used a slightly different version of the Venus figure. Josiah Wedgwood, with whom Boulton was in close business contact, criticised the quality of the casting and modelling of the first version, which may have prompted Boulton to adjust and remodel it. The Boulton sketchbook, however, shows only one version. The ormolu urn is of later date.
A Venus vase perfume burner is in the collection at Syon House, Middlesex.
