Height: 14 inches

The heavy white painted, now paled to a limed ivory, cast iron tazza shaped urn with fluted and lobed tapering flared squat body on a square pedestal base survives from the last quarter of the nineteenth century.

The whole is in well-aged condition with the paint now flaking commensurate with age and weathering and structurally she is sound. The urn has rust verdigris to the interior and benefits from some garden moss growth.

Cast iron urns were produced in large quantities, the most noteworthy from the Coalbrookedale foundry, which this may well be from. This particular example is heavy cast so structurally it remains true.

A weighty urn of real stature, quality and magnificence.
