1920s Italian Patinated Brass Ewer.
Exquisite 1920s brass patinated ewer with a detailed figure of a man with a sea creatures body, holding on to a grotesque beast with intricate swags, sitting on a circular urn with a black plinth base.
A wonderful design probably copied from a early roman or Creation vase. Although a little worn in some places the Ewa is a beautiful colour and is as heavy as a bronze, it would have been used to contain wine. A very good looking piece of Grand Tour with a wonderful theme.
The Ewa measures 14 x 14 and stands 45 cm high.
