Porphyry vase with lid

XVII century. Porphyry. Room 110

Since the time of Antiquity, porphyry was one of the most highly regarded materials due to its rarity and great beauty, making it ideal for ornamental objects intended for the palaces of royalty and the aristocracy. The form and decoration of this example combine curving striations and gadroons. It is the pair to another similar one, also in the Prado (O491).
