Antique French Hand Forged Iron Sculpture Set in an Iron Urn France, circa 1880

About

An antique French cast iron urn of campagna form from France circa 1880 with a hand forged iron bush of spikes. Reminiscent of the enchanted hedge that surrounded sleeping beauty as well as the castle of the beast in Jean Cocteau's famous movie "La Belle et la Bete" these iron thorns appear to be growing out of the urn. Please use the zoom feature offered to enlarge the additional photographs to see the beautiful depth of the patina on the urn and the iron spikes. The juxtaposition of the organic roughness of the iron that mimics the softness of a living plant forms the unique allure of this piece. In addition, the grand scale of the entire urn and metal plant render this as a piece of unusual sculpture that will be a fascinating focal point in an interior.
