Majolica Garden Seat, Thomas Forester & Sons


Beautiful garden seat or stool manufactured by Thomas Forester & Sons. It’s really typical of the English production to realize this sort of decorative pieces with a trompe-l’oeil during the late nineteenth century. Here the artist creates a nice material effect with the decoration of bamboos. This garden seat is a mixing of two major trends of that time: the taste for ceramic artistic and taste for bamboo and rattan furniture. In one piece, the creator underlines the taste of that time for conservatory.
