Large antique Mediterranean Urn | Avander

Antique urns were at one time used for storing olive oil and preserving and are now the perfect antique home or garden accessory. They commonly adorn the steps and patios of coastal homes. They look beautiful and very sculptural completely empty inside the home but can be used outdoors planted with olive trees or trailing plants.

In the garden, they must be protected from static freezing water/soil if planted. In the wintertime, if you leave them outdoors, simply turn them upside down so that they cannot fill with water which will freeze (if you make a drainage hole to the bottom there is no need to do this).

If you establish a plant inside these pots simply use a plastic pot within which will allow for expansion and contraction of frozen soil and water.  If you do fill the pot with the soil we would recommend that you do not allow the pot and contents to freeze over winter.

Each pot is around 70-100 years old so please expect vintage imperfect condition.  Small chips, small holes and dents and repairs are part of their inherently unique look.  Occasionally there are traces of white residue where they have been previously painted.  Pots are often repaired and have some filler. There are often traces of olive oil inside the pots. The surfaces can be textured, pitted and flaky with loose paintwork and whitewash.

Urn Stand

Urn stands are sold separately.   Please add an urn stand to your order if you require one.  An urn stand is not essential.  If you add some weight to the bottom of the pot such as gravel, then the pot will be largely stable as it will be weighted at the bottom.
