Urns 

We have distinguished Urns from Planters by their generally more upright shape, combined with a distinct base or socle. Garden urns are very varied in shape, size and material and are not always intended to be planted, they can for example be finial urns with covers. There is a long history of urns being used in garden settings to introduce interest and an element of symmetry, which continues today.
