A green serpentine marble and gilt metal mounted urn, 20th century
Sold for £200
A green serpentine marble and gilt metal mounted urn, 20th century, possibly previously a table lamp, with everted rim and waisted neck, the swagged ovoid body with twin handles cast as rams' heads, with waisted stem and square base, 65.5cm high
The urn bears the usual minor knocks and scuffs overall consistent with age and use.
The neck, body, stem and base are separately made and assembled. These elements are loose, but could presumably be easily titghtened.
A threaded steel bolt protrudes from the top of the urn (but out of sight, within the hollow neck). Presumably this is to take a light fitment, but there would appear to be no way for an electrical flex to pass through the inside of the urn.
Essentially the lot is in perfectly presentable order overall.
