gilding, h 34.5cm × w 25.5cm × d 12.5cm More details

This flagon in the form of a freestanding sculpture seems to defy the law of gravity. The stem is shaped like a dolphin with its tail curled up. Balancing on its tail fins is a triton, a sea creature with the torso of a man and the legs of a horse. A nereid – a sea nymph – sits on his back.

On display in room 2.3
