Game of Urns

A  large and magnificent 19th Century bronze and marble French or Italian urn modeled after a Greek or Roman form. Originally purchased by a wealthy British tourist on the Grand Tour circuit of Europe's great classical sites 150 years ago. Our example was recently acquired from the sale of an important English collection.
 Spectacular condition and patina, 18 inches tall, unmarked.
