Seller: joyandpride2011 (1,083) 100%, Location: Howell, Michigan, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 262665297311 I'M DOWNSIZING AND SELLING THREE GENERATIONS OF TREASURES FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD! I HAD A SET OF 4 OF THESE AND OUR DAUGHTER TOOK THE SMALLER SET, SO I AM NOW OFFERING THIS MASSIVE SET FOR SALE ON EBAY. THESE HUGE MASSIVE GARDEN URNS WERE PURCHASED FROM AN ESTATE IN THE UPPER PENNINSULA OF MICHIGAN IN THE LATE 1970's. MY HUSBAND PURCHASED THE "BABIES" TO THIS SET, THEY WERE ABOUT 20" TALL, AT AN ANTIQUE SHOP IN PETOSKEY. THE SHOP OWNER SHOWED US PHOTOS OF THESE AND SAID THEY WERE FOR SALE BUT WE WOULD HAVE TO DRIVE TO THE "U.P. " AREA TO PICK UP, ACTUALLY WAS BETWEEN COPPER HARBOR AND MARQUETTE. WE WERE SO EXCITED AND DROVE RIGHT TO THIS ESTATE AND BOUGHT THEM IMMEDIATELY; HOWEVER, WE HAD TO DRIVE BACK THE NEXT WEEKEND AS WE NEEDED TO RENT A TRAILER TO GET THEM BACK TO OUR HOME. THE OWNER OF THE HOME WAS NOT THE ORIGINAL OWNER AND ONLY KNEW THE HOME WAS BUILT AND OWNED BY A SEA CAPTAIN WHO OWNED HIS OWN SHIPPING COMPANY, BACK IN THE 1800's. I WAS HOPING THE URNS WERE CHINESER OR JAPANESE, BUT HAVE SINCE HAD A FEW INFORMAL OPINIONS, AND THEY ALL CONCURRED, THESE ARE MOST LIKELY AMERICAN MADE, POSSIBLY BAUER OUT OF CALIFORNIA, OR MAYBE GALLOWAY OUT OF PENNSYLVANIA. I DID SEARCH ON-LINE AND SEEMS THESE ARE CLOSEST TO THE BAUER STYLES AND COLORS. ALSO, THE OWNER HAD TWO HUGE 4 1/2" TALL BROWN BROMZED GLAZED WATER URNS AND ABOUT A 6 MONTHS LATER HE AGREED TO SELL TO US AS WELL... ANOTHER TRIP TO THE UP, RENTED A TRAILER, AND BROUGHT THESE HOME TOO. I HAVE THOSE OUTSIDE IN MY ZEN GARDEN BY MY POOL AND WILL BE SELLING THESE SOON, SO KEEP CHECKING MY STORE. AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PHOTOS, EACH URN HAS A CUSTOM MADE GALVANIZED METAL CAP AND A HEAVY WOOD TOPPER - SEEMS THESE WERE MADE AT A LATER DATE. THE ESTATE WE PURCHSED THESE FROM WAS MASSIVE, VERY PALATIAL, AND THESE WERE DISPLAYED IN THE BACK GARDEN OF THE HOME UNDER A COVERED POOL AREA. WE HAVE HAD THEM INSIDE OUR HOME, IN OUR LIBRARY, ON EITHER SIDE OF A FIREPLACE - AS SEEN IN MY PHOTOS. THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY STUNNING, NOT JUST THE SIZE, BUT THE BLUE COLOR AND THE LOVELY ALMOST GRAVITY DEFYING DESING/SHAPE... THEY MEASURE 36" TALL, THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE WOOD TOPPER, AND THE BASE IS A MERE 10" IN DIAMETER, THE TOP RIM IS 13" IN DIAMETER. THEY ARE BULBOUS AND THE WIDEST PART MEASURES 72" IN CIRCUMFERENCE. I CAN'T WEIGH THEM BUT FEEL CERAIN THEY ARE SEVERAL HUNDRED POUNDS EACH. THEY ARE NOT GLAZED ON THE INSIDE AND SEEMS THESE ARE SOME SORT OF CERAMIC OR POTTERY. THE BLUE GLAZE IS MUCH MORE EVEN THAN IT APPEARS IN MY PHOTOS. THE ORNATTE TRIM NEAR THE TOP AND ON THE HANDLES HAVE AGED TO AN AMBER TONE. THESE ARE IN REALLY GOOD CONSITION, ESPECIAL;LY CONSIDERING THEIR AGE, AND HAVE NO STRUCTURAL CRACKS OR FRACTURES BUT ONE HAS PIECES CHIPPED OFF THE RIM AS SEEN IN MY PHOTOS, OTHERWISE IN WONDERFUL CONDITION.THESE ARE SO STUNNING, PERFECT AWE INSPIRING PIECES FOR YOUR HOME OR GARDEN, FROM A TIME WHEN OPULENCE WAS DISPLAYED WITH PIECES LIKE THIS... PLEASE REVIEW MY PHOTOS AND CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS I WILL BE HAPPY TO HELP. I CAN NOT SHIP THESE BUT WILL BE HAPPY TO WORK WITH YOUR FREIGHT FORWARDER. Color: TURQUOISE TEAL BLUE, Maker: NOT SURE, Material: CERAMIC POTTERY CLAY STONEWARE
