Questions about this piece?


These charming flower baskets were inspired by 18th century Vincennes porcelain flowers, which, like these models, aimed to make immortal the natural beauty of a flower bouquet.

The pair was designed by Jane Hutcheson in partnership with the Gorham Manufactory Company in Providence, Rhode Island, as part of the extensive ‘Fleurs des Siècles’ (Flowers of the Centuries) series. The models were marketed at the time as “blooming beautifully from here to eternity to grow more precious with time”.

Inlaid inside of woven gilt-metal baskets sit glorious bouquets of enamel flowers. Delicately painted in vibrant shades of red, yellow, and white, the flowers seem almost like jewels as they beautifully catch the light. Peeking through the buds are fanning green leaves etched with vein designs. Each flower and leaf is mounted upon a dainty gilt-metal stem.

With their eye-catching charm, this pair makes a wonderful collector's item that would bring floral beauty into any home.
