A gorgeous pair of likely late 19th century or early 20th century decorative cast iron urns on plinths. With layers of previous paint now faded and peeling and a natural aged patina that only the passing of time can truly create.
The name 'campana' comes from the Italian for bell which perfectly describes the elegant curves and wide openenings of these classic pieces.
Each urn has a fine fluted base, gadrooned waist and ornate body embellished with deep relief floral scrolls. The two traditional looped handles each have two faces or 'masques' and the rim is finished with a repeat pattern known as 'egg and dart'.
One half of one rim is sadly missing but this could be recast from the remaining piece to once again complete this wonderful duo.
Sorry but this fine pair actually SOLD before we could even post them on the website, as the saying goes 'quality will out!'
