McGrew & Son, Cincinnati, circa 1860, the ovoid body with two gargoyle mask with drop-ring handles, decorated with engine-turning; anthemia and strap-work enclosing a cartouche on either side, one vacant, one engraved Anna M. Wood, the stand with an openwork foliate skirt, raised on four scroll feet; the same body, but slightly different decoration, as the urn in the Lincoln.
