Pair of cast iron garden urns marked JW Fiske NY. This design is illustrated in the 1893 Fiske catalogue where it is described as the "Graystone" pattern. Urns have a harvest/ corn stork decoration on the underside of the bowl, and scrolled formal leaf design with curved upper edge applied separately to the bowl sides under a dentil lip. It is unusual for these applied decorations to survive undamaged, if at all. One of the 2 of these urns has had some of the missing applied pieces replicated. Each urn is 31.5" high with a bowl diameter of 23.5" and a base 12.75" square. The urns have been rust-proofed and painted.
