Large William Kent urn of fine design and quality, circa 1735. Probably one of the finest urns ever designed by this famous architect and designer. Undoubtedly used in Alexander Pope's garden at Twickenham.
The variation in some of the carved detail is almost certain to be the stonemason's interpretation. Ideal for vistas or avenues. Four of the original six urns are now in the formal gardens of Longleat House. Usually mounted on the Longleat pedestal.
Every chilstone urn is hand made in composite stone. Urns can be used as planters, vases or as decorative features.
Pedestal sold seperately.
