Full Description
An impressive pair of superb quality Italian bronze urns - early 20th Century - with repeated relief design of winged cherubs above a foliate and acanthus filled ground and flanked by superbly detailed horned satyrs with flowing beards - their mouths open to blow the winds to the four corners of the world, their horns creating eight handles to each urn.

These came from the garden of a private house in Hampshire where they have been on the patio for many decades and have developed a beautiful verdigris patina indicating a high quality bronze with a large copper content. Bronze will not rust and these beautiful urns can be placed outside at an entrance or in a garden and the patina will continue to improve. For indoor display these could be waxed and polished to a reveal a warm brown patina.

A really wonderful and rare pair of large antique bronze urns of exceptional quality and in excellent original condition.

These are very heavy items and each can only just be lifted off the floor so our driver will need assistance with delivery please
