Footnotes

  • The Portland vase is a Roman cameo glass vase held at the British Museum. The first recorded mention of the vase is a letter of 1601 to Peter Paul Reubens. It passed through the collections of the Barberini family and Pope Urban VIII before ending up in the possession of William Cavendish-Bentinck, 3rd Duke of Portland.
    The Duke went on to lend the vase to Josiah Wedgwood who produced a number of copies in jasperware. The history behind the first silver example is more elusive: Hunt & Roskell featured one on their stand in the 1851 Great Exhibition, but earlier examples have been noted from at least 1820.
