Pair Italian bronze cinerary vases

Pair of Italian neoclassical covered bronze cinerary vases. The vases, based on antique Roman prototypes, share the same composition – ribbed domed covers over a relief frieze with female masks at each side, with gadroons below resting on a round plinth decorated with a laurel band. The relief decorations include an eagle, cattle skull, scrolls, a face in a shield etc. all arranged in a differing composition on each vase. [Differing finials.]
