Possibly a ‘Grand Tour’ item.
The Grand Tour was an extended excursion to the Continent undertaken by English gentlemen to enhance their appreciation of the culture of the main European cities such as Paris, Rome, Florence, Venice, Pompeii, etc. Often antiquities and replicas were brought back to England to form collections.
