Victorian metal and glass urn - red painted decor - 1896
Antique Victorian metal and glass urn. Metal base and metal top insert. Glass center. Base is marked Pat Aug 11th 1896. Oval insert, likely for a photograph. Center well in top insert is 4" deep, not deep enough for a long flower stem. This was probably not originally painted red. What is it? Hmm...well, we weren't able to find a match to confirm our theory, but it's possible it was a funereal ashes urn. It's empty though.
SIZE 14" tall
CONDITION Good. There are some chips and scratches in the glossy red paint coat. And a bit of newspaper stuck to the side.
