Fine French 19th Century Napoleon III Gilt Bronze-Mounted Porcelain Planter



A very fine and rare French 19th century Napoleon III gilt bronze-mounted porcelain and enamel standing jardinière (planter) in the Egyptian Revival Style, probably by Sèvres, the circular green porcelain basin with relief gold decorations and cast foliate rim decorated with cornucopia within foliate scroll ornament, supported on turned enameled metal columns headed by mythical birds united by a center standard, on circular plinth and outswept feet ending in talons. The base bears a pseudo "Caen French Porcelain" marking, circa 1870. Measures: Height: 44 1/4 inches (112.4 cm), diameter 19 3/4 inches (50.2 cm). The French National Porcelain Factory of Sèvres (Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres) was and still is one of the most important and renown porcelain manufacturers in Europe. It is located in Sèvres, Hauts-de-Seine, France. The Sèvres porcelain factory was continuously part of the political order, first royal, then imperial and finally national. Continuously in operation, the factory has been creating objects since 1740. Caen was a porcelain factory located in Calvados, Normandy and was run by d’Aigmont-Desmares and Ducheval. The factory was only active from 1793-1806 when it closed.
