Great Urns
designed by
William Kent
For many years Chilstone have
manufactured urns from original
designs by one of the greatest
garden and landscape designers
ever, William Kent. His work has
been enormously influential all
over the world and epitomises
the English Garden style. He
influenced the great designers
who followed including Humphrey
Repton and Capability Brown,
himself a student of William Kent.
Illustrated here are two urns
designed by William Kent,
the Pope’s Urn (named after
Alexander Pope) and the
Longleat Urn (based on a set of
six at Longleat). These great Urns
feature in a famous reference
work of the time ‘Some Designs
of Inigo Jones and Mr William
Kent’ by Vardy 1744
These are among our most
popular pieces and Chilstone
also make the William Kent urn.
Tip: Both of these great Urns
are also used as finials over
large gate piers.
The Longleat Pedestal and
Pope’s Urn Pedestal are
interchangeable and can also
be used with the Victoria,
Nothbourne, Chalybeate
and William Kent Urns.
