Cast iron amphora with two handles, with the remains of the old gilding
i do not really know a lot about pieces like this
looks like neoclassicism to me
butis it an Neoclassicism piece around 1780-1850 or a historicism piece from the 1880s to 1900?
it strongly reminds me of karl friedrich schinkel's designs
somebody owns the Bard Graduate Center exhibition catalogue: "Cast Iron from Central Europe, 1800-1850"?
An nearly identical urn is illustrated on page 218 i've read....
