    This sat in the shop for quite awhile. Yesterday, I broke down and bought it. Weighs about a kilo (2.2 lbs). I've been looking at various photos on the web trying to determine how old this urn might be, but haven't had too much luck. I was hoping that the base might offer a clue.
    The only damage is two very slight nibbles on the edge which can be sanded out.
    Some types of these urns were used as apothecary jars.

    Thanks for stopping.

      Bonnie, I remember seeing these sort of things on dressing tables.......and they had cotton wool balls in them!!!

      Judy - oh yes, I hadn't thought about that! I've seen smaller ones used on dressing tables. This urn measures 12 inches, so seems too high for a dressing table item.

      Great! Some were too in old bonbon shops :-)

      This one is more modern:

      kyra - Maybe that's where mine was originally - in a shop. I wonder how old mine is - I think it's really pretty.

      Thomas - thanks ! I couldn't photograph it inside and waste all that sunlight, lol!

      i was thinking along the same lines as tassie too but given the height of what u mentioned it looks like maybe its an urn for cookies!
    7. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 6 years ago
      fleafinder - yes, I imagine just about any sort of treat could go in there. However, I would never allow children to help themselves...I envision dings and chips.....
