POA

Pair of very rare 18thcentury Louis XVI cast iron urns designed by Louis for use in Versailles but gifted to the Rohan Cardinal who was a great friend. The urns would have been used in the garden design of the Rohan Castle at Savernes in Alsace. The castle was built in 1760. Only 8 urns had been produced 4 with heads and 4 without. There are two  outside Versailles one in the Savernes museum and these two exsist today.The cast workshop in which these were produced was the one that worked for Versailles
