Another remarkable piece is Lot 193 – an Edwardian silver Warwick vase by Edward Barnard & Sons, hallmarked London 1903 (below right). The Warwick Vase originates from fragments discovered by Gavin Hamilton (1723–1798) in 1769-70, which he found while excavating in the silts of Lake Pantanello in the grounds of the Villa Tiburtina outside of Rome. The villa was owned by the renowed Roman Emperor Hadrian (AD 117-38).
