Late 19th century English cast iron of classic campana form featuring open
loop and mask handles with festoon swags on the bowl. Wonderful color! Would make a stunning centerpiece to your outdoor garden table!
Note: this urn is attributed to the Andrew Handyside foundry of Derbyshire England, a firm established in 1817 and subsequently taken over by Andrew Handyside in 1847. Widely and long recognized for the quality of its castings, it's designs for garden ornament primarily focused on classical forms. Sadly however, business fortunes started to change as the firm entered the 20th century and in 1931 they closed their doors forever.
