The Rochford Brown Pet Urn is a modern classic - a modern polished brass paw print design engraved on a classically shaped, classically coloured urn. The urn is hand cast from high quality brass, and has been superbly finished in bronze-coloured brushed brass. Twin bands on the body of the urn echo the polished brass of the paw print design; and the design itself recurs on the half-dome lid, again offset by the beautiful warm colour of polished brass.
The Rochford Brown Pet Urn is Height:8", Diameter:18", Base-Width:3.2", Cap Width:4". It weight around 1.4kg when unfilled, and has been designed to hold the full ashes of one pet. The half-dome lid is secured to the body of the urn using a screw thread, ensuring completely confident transport and storage. With the proper care, the outstanding finish will last for generations.
The practice of memorialising loved animals in pet urns is an historic one, and has been known since Ancient Egypt. The Egyptians venerated cats, and would provide the same burial services for their domestic animals as they did for the other loved members of their families.
Our pet urns are designed to provide the same level of sensitivity and remembrance. They are suitable for home display in a variety of situations, from an interior memorial or mantel display to storage outside. Please note that weather conditions may cause verdigris on the metal: though with regular care and attention this can make the urn look very natural in its surroundings.
