Angelo Minghetti started his own workshop in Bologna in 1849, where he set about trying to recapture the art of 15th and 16th century Italian majolica, especially the Urbino ware.
Thefront of the vase represents the Triumph of Bacchus, the Roman god of wine. On the way back from his successful journey to India, Bacchus, with his usual company of Maenads, Satyrs and Silenus, came to the island of Naxos, where he discovered Ariadne and married her.

Abandoned by Theseus on the island of Naxos, Ariadne is discovered by the wine-god Bacchus, who falls in love with her and marries her. The winged figure in the foreground is Hymen, god of marriage.
