Reproduction Roman patera
Add to album

This reproduction silver pan, also known as a patera, was bought from Sabatino de Angelis et fils in 1900. The original was excavated at Pompeii and is now in the National Museum of Naples.

The border is enriched with moulded decoration and the handle chased with bird heads.

Neapolitan foundries produced tens of thousands of copper alloy reproductions of items excavated at Pompeii and Herculaneum. The main manufacturers in the period 1860 to 1920 were Sabatino de Angelis, J Chiurazzi and G Sommer. All three issued catalogues. The reproductions were available in different sizes and different finishes including marble and silver. The de Angelis and Chiurazzi firms combined in the early 20th century.
