Description

Using a metalwork technique known as repousse, where relief images are hammered from the reverse side, this brass jardiniere was hand-crafted in France, circa 1850. Floral and foliate motifs, separated by a repeating chevron pattern have been worked with pierced elements dotting the brass. Additionally, the ring of florets is topped by slanted fluting, while there is a border of interlacing foliage beneath interlaced acanthus leaves. Four monopodial lion feet offer support for the planter and there are two lion mascarons at each end, both with a twisted hoop through the mouth. A beautiful pierced and repousse brass jardiniere with a well-worn patina, this would make a great indoor planter or decorative piece for a small table.

CONDITION: Good antique condition with wear commensurate to age and use, including minor verdigris and buildup, specifically to the interior. Fleabites and light age separations.
