After a 19th century original by Manifattura di Signa, this pair of garden planters or troughs has a Bacchanalian scene set between two layers of foliate embellished moldings. Manifattura di Signa was an Italian workshop that specialized in terra cotta and ceramics in the late 1800’s-early 1900’s.
The planters depict reveling putti frolicking with swags of grapevines. Both rectangular planters feature a continuous band of putti and garlands, allowing the planters to be positioned in the open. They sit on top of bracket feet with a monopodial claw foot on each side, giving additional height. The planters have a wonderful, variegated patina of light gray/white, and cream with darker areas. Whether used indoors or outside, our pair of classical Italian garden planters or troughs would bring interest to any area they are placed.
CONDITION: Good condition condition with light buildup and minor wear, nicks . The stone has a cream finish, but has developed a speckled patination consisting of gold, black, and gray. Please see photos.
