A Large Antique Brass Jardiniere from France, 19th Century

This large antique oval, brass repousse (hand hammered relief) jardiniere is from France. These are typical of 17th to 19th century France, and would have been used for displaying flowers or plants.  The lion’s head has a rope handle through its mouth with drapery tassels hanging from it (this piece is bronze).  There is a metal liner for the water. Today these are still used for display of flowers and plants.

CONDITION: Good antique condition with commensurate wear and minor denting to motifs in areas. There are separations at ends of ovals. There are holes in areas at the base periphery, perhaps for drainage.

H=7 1/4, L=23 3/4, D=19 (including ornament)
