The first and 4th pics show a pair of garden urns i purchased a couple wks ago. I think they are really beautiful. I would guess they'd be considered arts and crafts period, but could be victorian. any ideas? the second shot is just part of my collection of strawberry pots. the 3rd pic is a neat little workbench i picked up the other day. The bust underneath it is one of a pair i have of einstein and schweitzer. i don't know anything about them.

    Deco is a possibility, later deco.

    yep, I'd say arts&crafts - deco: they look like Frank Lloyd Wright's famous designs for midwestern homes in the 1910s...though not quite as modernist as his.

    i think that they are from 1910-1925 - somewhere in there.

    I'd agree that urns of this form were popular in the early years of the 20th century. I found a few places that are still making them today. One maker refers to them as 'Mission style' urns, or 'square strap' urns: http://www.kenroyhome.com/catalog/Catalog.aspx?d=MTR8MXxbIEZvdW50YWlucyBd

    thanks chadakoin. those ones from kenroy definitely look like copies/re-issues. they are about 1/3 the size of mine, which are made from very heavy cement / cast-stone. they are definitely old.
