Maker's mark of Robert Garrard II
The detachable liners are marked by Sebastian Crespell II
Each one is shaped as an oval vessel that rests on a base of dolphins and shellwork. The handles are formed as Venus, narcissistically admiring her reflection in a hand mirror, and Adonis, who stares at his companion in a pensive pose. The detachable liners are marked by Sebastian Crespell II.
Modelled after the pair in the Royal Collection (RCIN 51271) made in 1743-44 by Nicholas Sprimont for Frederick Prince of Wales.
