(England 1750 – )
25.1 x 18.1 x 10.6 cm:
a - vase; 21.2 x 18.1 x 10.6 cm
b - cover; 4.5 x 8.6 x 8.5 cm
The principal reserve shows Diana, goddess of the hunt. That on the back is painted with birds in branches. Originally the vase would probably have been one of a pair in a garniture of three, the centre vase having a straight neck and domed cover (a garniture of this description decorated with Watteau scenes is in the British Museum).
