An unusually large pair of patinated cast iron garden urns in the Classical manner.

In original weathered condition.

While in Europe the traditional funeral urn only dates back as far as the late 16th century and early 17th century, the Chinese have been know to manufacture examples as early 7000 BC. During the 18th century, urns manufactured of marble as well as artificial stone started making frequent appearances in gardens of grand European estates. The 19th century saw a peak in garden urns manufactured of iron and terracotta, with Val d’Osne being the most popular in France.
