RV1702

* A Roman Bronze Vessel, Roman Imperial Period (ca. 1st - 2nd Century AD)

The dark-brown surface of this lovely bronze vessel is partially covered with a beautiful green patina.  Made from elements separately worked then assembled, it features a slender neck with multi-circled rim and circular base that were both soldered to a gently tapering body hammered from a single sheet of bronze. 

Of highest quality both technically and artistically; the body, with its sinuous and elegant profile, the fineness of the neck to enable good control when pouring expensive liquids.  Several concentric circles of varying thickness in raised relief form the base.

Dimensions:   Height:  4 1/4 inches (10.8 cm)

Condition: Intact and in excellent condition overall.  A truly lovely example.

Provenance: Ex. private collection of Mrs. Gerald Bronfman, Canada, acquired from Charles Ede in the 1960's- 1980's. Canadian Bronfman family owes its initial fame to Samuel Bronfman (1889–1971), who made a fortune in the alcoholic distilled beverage business during the 20th century through the family's Seagram Company.
