Keepsake cremation urns are just a smaller version of a full-size adult urn. An adult vase-shaped urn will usually measure about 10 or 11 inches high. In comparison, small keepsake urns are only about 3" high on average and will hold a token amount of ashes, which amounts to a couple of tablespoons of cremains.
