Arts and Crafts Gothic Octagonal Stone Garden Urn / Font c. 1860

A fine Victorian Gothic stone urn in excellent original condition with no repairs or breaks.  
This design almost invariably dates from the mid 19th Century despite some claims that they could be Regency. With finely sculpted Gothic quartrefoils to all eight faces.
The urn dismantles into three heavy sections: base, column and urn/font.
The stone is beautifully carved by hand and is attractively weathered and covered with lichen.
The urn has a water outlet through the central column so if planted, flowers can be well watered.
From a local estate with some provenance.

Maximum dimensions are:
24.5 inches wide and 30 inches high.
The urn separates into three sections for ease of transport – the base is 7.5 inches high, the column is 11 inches high and the font is 11.5 inches high.
For metric please multiply by 2.5

Below this is an engraved brass letter box opening, a hinged door with 'piano-hinge' opened by key (included), a brass engraved information plaque and a drawer below for wax and seals. Height - 58cm Diameter - 24cm Letter Box Width - 7.3cm Drawer Width & Depth - 11cm, 14.5cm NB: The base of the post box is not dramatically lighter than the rest of the box - glare from the photo lights has given this impression.

Collectors Corner - K2 Reclaimed London Telephone Box - Fully Refurbished

Collectors Corner - K2 Reclaimed London Telephone Box - Fully Refurbished

Sellers Comments -A STUNNING ORIGINAL K2 TELEPHONE KIOSK. Created in 1926 by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott for a GPO completion and chosen by the Royal Fine Arts Commission as the outstanding design, the K2 is the original red telephone kiosk.

 It has been an enduring presence at the heart of London, bearing witness through a Blitz, the changes of the Sixties and Royal and State occasions. Its imposing elegance is influenced by the tomb of architect Sir John Soane. Larger and more ornate than later kiosks, the pierced crown and circular vented ceiling show how the practical can also be stylish. Too expensive for national use, the Post Office produced them exclusively for the London area.. All examples still on the street are preserved by order of English Heritage. A fully refurbished k2 telephone box. viewing/collections from se25 (near croydon) delivery can be arranged. Dimensions 3ft.6in x 3ft.6in x 9ft 4in. Weight. 1250kgs
