The Warwick Vase is a Roman marble vase with Bacchic ornament, discovered in the silt of a marshy pond at Hadrian's Villa about 1771 by Gavin Hamilton. He sold the fragments to Sir William Hamilton who repaired it with Carrara marble and shipped it to his nephew George Greville, 2nd Earl of Warwick, who set it on a lawn at Warwick Castle before building a conservatory for it. As a famous piece, a mould was made of it and two full-size bronze replicas were cast, one now Windsor Castle, the other in the Fitzwilliam Museum. At auction in 1978 the vase was purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but after it was declared an object of national importance an export licence was denied. It is now in the Burrell Collection near Glasgow in Scotland.
