These beautiful French urns on pedestals are re-editions of 19th century French originals by an unknown manufacturer. The color and consistency of the clay used to make these urns also matches the originals. The color is a rich ochre cream with darker aging. The ornamentation of the urns consists of two lion’s heads and two scrolled handles are at the widest points of the urns. Swags of flower garlands drape gracefully around the urns periphery. Gadrooned lobes cover the undersides of the bodies and the urns’ necks have linear cabochons and reed and ribbon moldings at the top and bottom, all placed upon a square plinth. The square pedestal bases upon which the urns are placed have stepped in moldings at the top and stepped out moldings at the bottom. These French urns are stunning and can be used inside our out.
CONDITION: Good overall condition with varying patina and distress including minor nicks and marks as seen in photos. It is advised to mortar these into place to make level, otherwise shims can be used.
