Large 19th Century Terracotta Urn on Modern Cement Plinth

About

This large terracotta urn shows playful children and goats frolicking, as well as continual grape vines and trees around the entire perimeter. It has two steel retaining rings mounted to secure the urn and to keep the existing stress crack from becoming more of an issue. It currently rests upon a modern cement base. This is likely Italian but we can’t be certain, we purchased this urn at a de-acquisition sale held at The Carnegie Museum of Pittsburgh in the 1970s, and it may have been an item that Andrew Carnegie had himself commissioned for his new museum. Dimensions: Urn on base 62 ½” total height Urn: 33 ¾” tall; 29” diameter.
