A wonderful pair of 19th century, buff terracotta garden urns by Garnkirk. Garnkirk Fire-clay Company based near Glasgow, was established by the Sprot family around 1850. In 1860 it was said to be the biggest fireclay company in the world, covering six acres and employing over three hundred men. It was closed in 1898.
Both urns stamped and in good condition, with minor nibbles and chips commensurate with age. One urn attached to its socle, both with traces of old paint.
Scottish circa 1870
