With original patina, see description

I bought the old iron amphorae pair made of terra cotta and including a base in Marlborough, England, in 1989 in an antique shop called ‘Garden Antiques’. In 1989 these were stupidly painted blue and later black. I would recommend sandblasting them because the paint is chipping. A few pieces of the iron decorations on the iron amphorae are missing, see photos. Age-related signs of wear and tear.
Dimensions: Iron amphora: 55 cm tall, upper diameter: 40 cm
Iron base: 13 cm tall, 25 x 25 cm
Terra cotta base: 40 cm tall, 37 x 37 cm
Total height: 114 cm
One amphora has 3 of the 6 iron ornaments: photos 6104 - 6105 + 6106
The other amphora has none of the ornaments: photos 6107 - 6108 + 6109
