Rare 19th Century Borghese Vase
Made by Austin and Seeley, this composition stone vase stands on a square base. It is a copy of the Borghese Vase that is currently in the Louvre Museum. The rim features an egg and dart design while the bowl depicts a scene that corresponds to the saying The Gods look after children and drunken men which has been passed down orally through many generations. An elaborate and elegant piece, such as this, is rare to come across.
