Of white painted limewood. Each in the form of a classical handled urn, with ovoid body and a central frieze carved with putti at play, from which are suspended laurel swags. The angular à la Greque handles “fixed” with bolt-heads and conceived in a curious perspectival manner. The whole resting on an elongated fluted socle above a carved bound laurel base.
