The Ashford Urn is copied from the original at Eastwell Manor and is also available as a fountain. It is made with crushed limestone using a dry cast process which weathers beautifully over the years. A lattice design surrounds the bowl sitting on a tapered fluted base.
Please note: The version of the Ribbon Swag Jardiniere shown here has developed a nice weathered patina. The original color is Portland limestone. If you would like to fast forward nature, please ask us about our hand staining weathered finish.

Urna in Latin means a jog, jar, or vessel. Hyrke in Greek refers to an earthen vessel or a measurement of liquid. Urns as garden ornaments are stately, classical, and can be made in many different materials. They are perfect alone or in pairs and can be left empty or filled with plants and greens.
