Title Type

assigned by cataloguer


The volume Bn 11, entitled Vase antiche, is devoted entirely to vases, some antique, but mostly fanciful products after the antique. A large number of the engravings have the initials AE. V and the representation of fanciful vases fall into three groups, distinguished by the inscriptions (a) sic Romae antiqui sculptores ex aere et marmore faciebant,
(b) ex Romanis antiquitatibus,
(c) Romae ab antiquo repertum


Content (description)

The tall cylindrical vase has a tall knobbed lid and stands on a stout foot. It is identical in shape to Bn. 11. 4. Between the mouldings are two pedimented rectangles in relief. In each pediment is a circle. In the left rectangle is a round temple, with four columns supporting its domed roof; in the right rectangle is a six-leafed palmette, from the centre of which rises a plume. Below is the inscription AMANEON.
