GV II Urn. Circa 1826 to 1842 for Charles Kynaston Mainwaring. Sandstone. Large urn with foliage decoration and two horned ram's heads to sides. Ornamental carving to rim and plumed feather-like decoration to underside; carved plinth. Probably original square base with chamfered projection to sides.

Charles Kynaston Mainwaring was a keen amateur gardener and he travelled extensively on the continent. It is believed that he was personally responsible for much of the design of the garden at Oteley and for the features therein. His house, Oteley Park, built for him in an Elizabethan style on the site of an earlier building between 1826 and 1840 and extended in 1842 was demolished circa 1960.
