Not on view

For comparable baroque-style enameled gold mounts and especially the satyr's mask, see an agate ewer with enameled gold mounts signed by the Paris goldsmith and enameler Charles Duron. Both the satyr's mask of this agate ewer and the one on 17.190.542 are likely to have been based on the mount of a lapis lazuli cup that was formerly in the collection of King Louis XIV and is now in the Galerie d'Apollon at the Louvre. The lapis lazuli body of the Louvre's cup is now known to be Italian, XVI century, and the mounts, similar in the enamel colors as well as the style to the Duron mask, to be French, XVII century.
