Original Papes: Metal Wine Cooler, by Bradbury, of Sheffield. 87 The above details are given as accurately as they can be collected, chiefly from returns made to the Commons, on the motion of Mr. Bouverie, and ordered to be printed 12th February, 1849, No. 23, from " Godson on Patents ;" and the Report of a Treasury Committee on the Signet and Privy Seal offices, presented to Parliament, 1849. This Report makes the cost (including some payments for opposition), 981. 2s. 6d. METAL WI NE COOLER, mare The design of this vase shews a the material, inasmuch as the broa for the lights and reflexes which di Bradbury, of Sheffield. )n of the characteristic use of si forms are admirably adapted precious metals ; although we think we should hardly have selected the style which Mr. Bradbury has chosen for the very well-executed ornaments which form the accessories. The detail of the age of Louis XV. we would rather forget than perpetuate. The summer of butterfly petite maitres, of courtiers frivolous and artificial, produced but little on which the memory can dwell with satisfaction ; and the fantastic creations of the eccentric genius of Watteau constitute almost the sole pleasant reminiscence connected with the dominion of barocgqe and roeaille. Still the sharpness and angularity of the ornamental parts of this vase contrast advan- tageously with the broad and plain parts. Were we disposed to be hypercri- tical, we should perhaps object to the introduction of the naturalistic handles; in other respects the various ornaments are sufficiently well combined.
