Porphyry vase

Ca. 1650. Porphyry. Room 110

This simply carved, two-handled vase has gadroons around the bottom and lip. Decorative objects made in porphyry were obligatory items in royal and aristocratic collections, particularly in the seventeenth century, as inventories of the period indicate. They were usually acquired by Spaniards posted to Italy as ambassadors and viceroys. (Modern wooden base).
