WARWICK VASE
The Warwick Vase was excavated in Italy by Gavin Hamilton, and later owned by Lord Hamilton. The vase was pieced together from fragments which took a long time and was expensive. There is an apocryphal story that the restorer changed one of the eight God's heads into a portrait of Lady Hamilton with a pointed devil's ear because she had offended him.
