Architectural Artifact from My Collection

This zinc urn was once on a dormer in Newark NJ. A gentleman nearby said his father got it from a building that was being demolished. It was just sitting in a junk pile in his back yard. One day on my way to the post office, I stopped and knocked on his door to ask if I could buy it. He said yes and it's been in my junk pile ever since. Not really, it's in a boxwood garden. my iPhone photo

The urn is lovely, Rosemary. I am so happy you rescued it from the junk pile and have given it a good life and purpose.

Wow, what a find. I wish there were things like that in our neighbors junk pile, although they don't really allow junk piles in Irvine. :D
