Ernst Bohne Sons Capodimonte Style Porcelain Bas Relief Urn With Cover

Presented for sale is a magnificent German porcelain covered, three-part, bolted urn in the Capodimonte style made by the firm of Ernst Bohne Sons (Rudolstadt).

The fitted cover is topped with a gilded porcelain finial.

The urn is richly decorated in vivid enamels stepped up with gilding, a stunning piece to display on a shelf, commode, or in a cabinet. It is in excellent condition, no breaks, chips, or repairs.
