A stylish pair of beautiful 19th Century French urns, unusual and elegant shape. During the Victorian era, they would probably have sat upon terracotta or stone garden plinths or pedestals, standing to each side of the front door or a garden gate, in this case probably a French Chateau. Exceptionally heavy, the handles are bolted on separately. No sign of old traces of paint, so we don’t believe they have ever been painted, but they do have a fantastic patina and wonderful detailed casting. Excellent condition, would look equally good inside or outside the home. A rare find.
Measurements; 35cm high, 74 cm wide to widest point including handles, 49cm diameter top 18.5cm square base
