Sketched by Charles Heathcote Tatham in 1795 , a stylised version conceived as a pastille-burner was produced by the celebrated Birmingham firm of Messrs Boulton and Fothergill at the Soho Manufactory , Soho, Birmingham , in response to the demand for the fashionable "after the antique" neo-classical style. The Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery hold an example by Matthew Boulton in their collection (no. 2000m13).
