A nice pair of ewers in gilt and patinated bronze with fluted handles decorated with vines leaves and grapes, resting on ram heads. They are surmounted by two sitting putti in patinated bronze, holding wine leaves and two doves in gilded bronze. On the belly, a frieze in brown patina bronze depicts a procession of Cupids playing the flute, drumming, pulling a goat by the horns and dancing around a putto holding the scepter, in a chariot decorated with masks. This is probably a bacchanal or an allegorical scene referring to the cult of Bacchus, the god of wine in Greek mythology. The base and neck are richly decorated with vines, grapes and acanthus leaves in gilt bronze.
