Antique French Cast Iron Snake Urn
This antique French cast urn with snake detail dates to the early 19th century. The snake tails begin on the body of the urn, come up and around to form the fluidly curving handles. The snake heads encircle the rim. Given the amount of rust, and many layers of degraded paint, we made the decision to restore it. The media blasted urn was galvanized, and further finished at the Branch Studio with a patina that looks much like lead. The studio went on to fabricate an associated pedestal for this remarkable piece. The urn weighs 77 lbs.
Overall diameter at the top 28″ x 18″ height.
Interior planting diameter is 22″
Pedestal priced separately at $1,275.00.
