Petite French Ruffled Cast Iron Urn with Lion Ring Handles
An unusual, mid-19th C petite cast iron tazza-form urn, this piece features a ruffled rim and lion head ringed handles. In original aluminum-colored paint with a bit of surface rusting, one of the lions has lost his mouth and the original ring has been wired to the handle and hangs slightly lower than the other. To our eye, it is barely noticeable, but we can have a professional restoration made to it if you so desire. Perfect in a powder room to hold soaps or as a centerpiece on a small table mounded with small fruits or moss.
