Object Description

The beautiful quartet of well carved white marble urns, of mixed form and varying design and patination levels, to include lotus leaf and greek key patterns, each sitting on square cut plinths, and surviving from the first quarter of the twentieth century.

Object History


Object Literature

One of the urns is engraved to one of the sides to its base ‘From the Neighbours’, indicating this group were given as a present at some stage, possibly as a wedding gift. The definition to the carving is very sharp and they are of very good quality, bringing many neoclassical motifs into play.

A beautifully formed group that can grace floor or table-top with ease.

Object Condition

The condition of the urns is generally very good with only small scuffs and nicks of loss, commensurate with age and use to them overall. They have obviously largely been kept inside as the marble remains largely purely white and without the evidence of exposure to the elements. Two of the bases have some staining as per the photographs and all four have drilled holes for drainage purposes.
