Hello again sorcerer2007-ga,

Thank you for following my recommendation on further explorations for
you special quest and posting a new question.

I?ve found some resources that are only available to wholesalers or
?to the trade.? Do you qualify on this score? Do you have access to
someone who does? Also, how many of these urns do you want to buy?

I look forward to your clarification.

yes I do have access to someone who is a designer/contractor.

If we can find the exact items, and a good price, I would buy up to 2
of each; the Big Stanley urn and the Blashfield vase. I may also find
homes for more but that's my minimum.

Hello again sorcerer2007-ga,

After much searching and scrolling through hundreds of images I?ve
found two places where you can buy the terra cotta urns you found at
Roger?s Gardens.

I found a source in New York state. They have both the Big Stanley Urn
(Pair T.C. Urns on Pedestals) and the Blashfield Urn (Large T.C.
Figurative Urns) as well as the Round Basket Urn (Round Basket Weave
Planter) just like the ones at Roger?s Gardens. Perhaps they?ll be
willing to tell you who is the maker of these urns so you can try to
locate a vendor closer to you.

It seems that the Roger?s Gardens urns and are available from other
retail shops but I haven't been able to find the European manufacturer
or the names of any distributors besides Greystone. I suggest that you
contact Greystone at the Pacific Design Center and see if they can
order the Blashfield and Big Stanley urns for you since they carry
several other urns from the same maker.

I also found another European source for the Blashfield urn. I suggest
that you contact them to see if they might be willing to tell you who
is the manufacturer or how you can find a distributor who sells these
urns in the US.

V42 Large Cherub Vase cast stone

(Looks like it?s from the same line as the other urns you?re interested in.)

I?ve also identified some additional Belgian dealers and sources that
might be able to help you track down the urns you?re looking for. The
Belgium and Holland Antiques site lets you search and sort for
categories you?re interested in. I?ve provided links to the ones that
seem to come closest to what you?re looking for. Some of them will
only deal with wholesalers. I hope that the US sites will be able to
provide you what you need. I?m offering these Belgian sites as backup
resources for further searching.

I hope that you will be able to buy the urns you?re looking for.

All the best.
