Garden furnitures

A 19th century Scottish terracotta garden urn and stand the lappet cast bowl with flowerhead frieze and stiff leaf cast socle, on a square pedestal decorated with oak leaves and acorns, on a plinth base.

A 19th century terracotta garden sundial, the associated bronze dial and gnomon on a fluted short column with ribbon moulded socle, on a square plinth base.

A pair of 19th century Scottish terracotta garden urns, each gadrooned bowl with stiff acanthus frieze and fluted socle, on pedestal moulded with sunken field arches and swagged urns, on a plinth base.

The style is dear to my heart but would not work in my mostly Asian garden. Thanks for the mini lesson in terminology. I don't think I've ever seen pieces like this described in such minute detail; certainly nothing that's made me aware that there are so many more parts than just "the planter on the stand"!

The silvered tufts are so wintry. Perfect choice for December.
