GRADD Model, The Trentham Laver, British Museum 3D Model
GRADD 3D Model of The Trentham Laver at the British Museum. A Fluted bowl supported on two griffin’s legs and central column springing from a floral ball. Below is an oval platform decorated with scale pattern supported by six blocks carved with grotesque heads. The blocks rest on a rectangular plinth decorated with scroll ornament. The bowl is of dubious antiquity. The legs are antique table or chair supports. The central floral column is certainly ancient (the support under it is new). The oval table is not genuine; the supporting heads are partly ancient having originally served as acroteria on the lid of a sarcophagus but the plinths with basket decoration are 18th century. The rectangular plinth slab has ornament carved in the early 3rd century AD but it has been altered to adapt it to its present use.
