This is a beautiful antique pair of French figured Carrara marble and gilded bronze urns in the Louis XV manner, circa 1870.
The urns feature gilt bronze gadrooned covers with acorn finials on pierced reeded necks. The pair of swan handles have draping coronets of ribbon, foliage and blooming flowers to the tapering ovoid shaped body.
The twisted scalloped ormolu stem terminates with a civic wreath and they are raised on square plinth base with acanthus clasps.
These lovely urns make a statement and will look fantastic flanking a mantel or sideboard. A fabulous antique find of the highest quality and sure to be noticed wherever they are displayed.
In excellent condition having been beautifully cleaned in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
