This extremely rare original set of three potpourri urns or vases was made in England in the early part of the 19th century c.1815. Each is decorated with hand-painted wraparound landscapes that include cottages, ruins and travelers, with Apollo masks molded at the handles. The lids, top rims and the area under the landscape decoration are all pierced. The urns have no marks, and I’d appreciate information to identify the factory that made this set, if you know. They are in excellent condition, with a little gilt wear and the only damage a tiny restored chip on one tip of one finial. Some of the surface shows peppering from the kiln. The largest urn is six inches high and five and three-quarters inches wide, handle to handle.
