RARE Pair LARGE Alabaster Urns with Figural Handles Planters
This is a super rare pair of large 19 alabaster urns. The top part, with its swirled ribbed body and leafy scalloped edging, fits snugly into the base. The top part of the base has a melon shaped body and amazing rolled handles with faces beneath them. Nice square and sturdy bottoms. This is the kind of find that makes your heart skip a beat. Condition: I date these urns to the 1930s and considering their age, they are in amazing condition. One urn is a little darker than the other, which you can see in the photos. Chipping is minimal and most of it is found around the top of the base where the top part slides in, which is to be expected. The bottom inch of these urns have small holes in them that suggest these were probably turned into lamps. So, they can easily be wired again, if you want to see the top part glow. It does look like the lighter shaded urn had a repair where the melon shaped part of the base meets the round part just above the square bottom. But you won’t find another one like this, let alone two! Thanks for stopping by. The item “RARE Pair LARGE Alabaster Urns with Figural Handles Planters” is in sale since Wednesday, March 20, 2019.
