Description

The large central cloisonné enamel jardinière decorated with varicolored plum flowers and butterflies, with a pierced ormolu rim featuring a lotus motif set on a finely cast ormolu base with four legs in the form of winged Foo lions

This impressive jardinière is very much in the manner of objects in enamel produced by Ferdinand Barbedienne in Paris in the last quarter of the 19th century which proved universally popular. Many these pieces were designed by Edouard Lievre (d. 1886) in the Oriental taste.
