Colors are predominantly red, cream, blue, green, black and metallic gold.
The age of these Thoune urns is unknown. This style of pottery was popular at the end of the 1800s into the early 1900s.
SIZE: 11.5" tall
CONDITION: Good. Urns have some minor chips. Most importantly, somewhere over the course of its life, one was broken between the bowl and the stem and put back together with some kind of clear silicone-like adhesive. It is noticeable if you are looking for it. Urns have been priced to reflect this mend.
