Object Description

This stylish half-barrel shaped jardiniere features some beautifully ornate elements, and will make a fine decorative piece as well as a beautiful antique gift. Though dating to the late 19th Century European Belle Epoque, the jardiniere has been designed in the Renaissance style, and there are masterfully worked Classical-style decorative elements all over its exterior.

Perhaps the most fine elements in the piece are the winged caryatids which adorn each of the four corners of the jardinere. They emerge from supports which lead to four paw feet, and are joined together by floral swags which they are shown holding. Elsewhere, the exterior of the jardiniere is decorated with laurel wreaths, and the centre of each of the longer sides contains a shield centred by a cherub mask, with ribbons shown above and below.

The short sides of the piece are mounted with bucrania, or rams’ heads, with laurel garlands at either side and a pierced foliate handle above. The jardiniere is marked ‘GJL’.
