Questions about this piece?


Consisting of ormolu, jasperware, and painted brass, this superb decorative jardinière was crafted in late 19th century France.

The front panel of the jardinière depicts a pair of charming cherubs flanking a central jasperware panel. The panel showcases a classical scene of a female dressed in flowing garments with foliage around her. Each cherub is holding the ends of two foliate garlands draped above and below the jasperware. Surrounding the central composition are various scrolling and floral motifs, draped garlands as well as egg and dart borders. The panel is topped by a depiction of a tied ribbon. The two longest sides are of a very similar design.

The two smaller side panels feature a prominent central palmette shape framed by hanging garlands, tied ribbons, scrolling motifs, and fruits. Ornate ormolu edging complements the design and draws the observer’s attention toward the fine detailing.

The jardinière stands on four ormolu feet and the four corners are topped by a shaped finial. The iliner is crafted out of painted brass, the gold colouring matching the ormolu used for the rest of the planter.

Several parts of the piece are variously numbered.

Of a classical design and desirable size, this table jardinière would beautifully complement a rich floral composition.
