Pair Antique Aesthetic Period Gilt Bronze Mounted Marble Urns with Cloisonne Enamel Decoration
This wonderful pair of urns from the Aesthetic movement date from the late 19th century. They're crafted from marble with gilt bronze mounts with inlaid cloisonne enamel. Each was previously mounted as lamps and the caps and finials were later added. One urn has a chip at the corner of the base, a flake chip at the center and a small chip at the left edge. The other has a shallow flake chip to the center of the base, and a surface flake to the side of the marble band that holds the enamel ring. Measures: 19.5 x 5.5 x 5.5 in; 126 x 14 x 14 cm.
