Description

The large central circular form cloisonné enamel jardinière decorated with flowers and butterflies on a blue ground, with a pierced ormolu rim featuring a pineapple motif, all resting on a finely cast ormolu base with four legs in the form of winged Foo lions

The present 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 of these pieces were designed by Edouard Lievre (d. 1886) in the Orientalist style.
