Pair of Rare French Estate-Sized Val d'Osne Urns on Mott Plinths

Pair of Rare French Estate-Sized Val d'Osne Urns on Mott Plinths

A fine and very rare pair of statuesque cast iron melon-form gadrooned urns with fixed lion mask ring handles, signed on their bases "Fonderies du Val d'Osne, 50 Bd Voltaire Paris". The urns are surmounted on a conforming pair of stepped and tiered cast iron plinths with maker's labels affixed to the base, stamped "JL Mott Ironworks, NY". This was the largest melon-form urn made by Val d'Osne and, at 5 feet in height and with huge planting wells, they have the perfect scale for a large and impressive estate. We love the old white paint with a bit of surface rusting, but, of course, these can be sandblasted and repainted to your custom specifications.

France and USA, CA 1870.
