Archiped Classics was founded in 1989 by Richard and Shelley Stanzel in Dallas, Texas. They create fine cast stone urns, jardinières, pedestals, and garden ornaments for interior and exterior use. In an era hallmarked by mass production, the Stanzels stand out as business professionals dedicated to preserving the artistic integrity of their products. All pieces are hand cast and finished—many are cast directly from antique originals. Others are designed by noted artists, such as the Prix de Rome de Peinture recipient, Jacques Lamy.

Each item in the Archiped Classics line represents the best of design and function. Not only are the urns and jardinières suitable for planting, everything the company makes is truly frostproof. The high quality cast stone weathers beautifully in both extreme heat and cold.

The Stanzels' corporate philosophy is rooted in customer satisfaction. Serving an international client base, Archiped Classics’ owners and staff understand the needs of the design trade professional. Timely deliveries and consistent quality demonstrate their commitment to customer service. Call 214-748-7437 for further information.
