Small French Directoire Urn

A  rare 18th century cast iron urn on a round base.

What attracted us to it was its simplicity, which we feel gives it a versatile contemporary look. It has a weathered finish, thanks to it still having its original patina.

On investigation we discorved this urn was manufactured in the French Directoire Period immediately after the revolution when over elaborate design was frowned upon by the authorities of the day.

This is a charming little piece of history could be used either indoors or on a patio or terrace.  

French, 1795.
