The Loan Collection, South-Kensington: Mother-of-pearl cup; Cellini Ewer; vase, 1862. Creator: Unknown

The Loan Collection, South-Kensington, 1862. Cup, in form of a partridge; the body formed of overlapping pieces of mother-of-pearl in imitation of feathers...Circa 1600. Baron L. de Rothschild. "The Cellini Ewer."...On each side of the sardonyx centre are projecting female heads...opposite is the head and body of a man terminating in two dragons tails; on the head of this last figure stands a sort of cockatrice or monster...Between its wings a Cupid is seated...The neck of the vase also set with rubies...Italian work of the 16th century. This magnificent ewer formed part of the Crown jewels of France before the first Revolution...A. J. B. Beresford Hope, Esq. Very remarkable vase, of the third or fourth century, formed of glass, which is of a pale ruby colour...One of the figures represents an aged man whose limbs are entangled with vine-branches, possibly Lycurgus, King of the Edones...To the left is Pan, followed by a dog or panther...This remarkable vase may, from its workmanship, be of the kind called by the ancients diatreta, and which seems to have been made by a special class of workmen, the diatretarii...Baron Lionel Rothschild'. From "Illustrated London News", 1862
