    Elegant and stately is this pair of marble and doré bronze urns hewn from the finest French “Partridge eye” rouge griotte marble from the Languedoc region. Named for the griotte cherry for its deep, rich color, red griotte was the favorite marble for Royal apartments in the 18th century, and was used to create the fireplace mantel in the office of Louis XIV in Versailles. This particular type is called “Partridge eye” due to its inclusion of goniatites (small fossilized shells) full of white calcite.

    Circa 1895
