Antique Urns & Planters 

Our stock of antique & vintage urns and planters typically ranges from very old items such as early carved stone urns to relatively modern but well weathered composition stone planters. The output of premium makers such as Haddonstone and Chilstone can be completely transformed after twenty or thirty years outside and are sometimes included in this section. There is also great scope to reuse salvaged objects and we aim to hold a selection of characterful containers such as old copper planters, vintage galvanised troughs and old cast iron troughs
