Lot No. 0515

Manufacturer: Durand

Description: Impressive Durand urn with cover. A wonderful blue “King Tut” design coils and meanders over a contrasting iridescent marigold backdrop. The cover is adorned with a ridged button amber finial and a halo of magenta encircling. Measures 10 inches and 8 1/2 inches across the shoulder. A factory paper sticker is beneath that reads “No. 1964 (hand written), Price (blank) and Dec. OK (hand written). There is a cloth tape adhered to the bottom as well, appearing to have originated from the factory and written in old ink with the shape number & size 1964-8” with code lettering and where an unbelievable price of $30.00 pr. is noted. This urn and a companion urn in this auction apparently have been together since leaving the factory. A stately vessel in excellent original condition.

Estimate: $2,000.00 - $2,500.00
