Antique French Gilt Bronze Jardiniere, Circa 1880

This antique French gilt bronze jardinière has winged cherubs and mascarons at the upper ends and center.  Both motifs symbolize resurrection in various forms.  The gilt bronze has been well preserved
and features motifs of scrolling rinceau or scrolling floral and foliate motifs at the center incorporating the winged cherubs. More foliate designs are throughout the rest of the jardinière, emphasizing its original use as a floral container.  Today it can be used as an accessory, a container for dried flowers or on its own for display purposes.  All this rests upon foliate scrolling feet at either end and four sided, splayed feet at the center areas.  It has a tin liner for the water, should fresh flowers be used in the jardinière.

CONDITION: Very good condition with minor rubs to gilt bronze in areas.
