Four Urns, at Rose Garden, at Anglesey Abbey
Four urns. Early C18. Two by P Scheemakers and two by L
Delvaux (signed). White marble. The two inner urns are by
P Scheemakers (1691-1781), one carved with the Sacrifice of
Iphigenia (after the Medici vase in the Uffizi) and the other
with the Sacrifice of Apollo. The two outer urns are by
Laurent Delvaux (1696-1778), one with a relief of a Bacchanalian
and the other with a heroic subject. They were made before 1728
for Wanstead House, Essex, sold 1822 and acquired for Leigh
Court Somerset. Acquired 1952. The pedestals are decorated
with swags of oak leaves and acorns and female faces.
