These George III urns were  zinc lined and ormolu mounted, the detachable covers with beaded and paterae decorated handles and beaded finials, the half reeded bodies with fluted and beaded paterae. The pedestals below had fluted friezes, one was lead lined and the other fitted with three short drawers.
