Rare Anthracite Cannel Coal Urn

$650.00 of rare coal!


On first glance this heavy urn or vase looks like marble, but is actually anthracite coal, or oil shale. Sculptures have been made from this easy to work material since Neolithic times. Not to accidentally be put in the fire, or next to it!  27.5 cm tall and 14 cm in diameter. Difficult to date, this vase is probably about 100 years old.
