French Sculptural Jardinière with Putti, Mythical Sea Horses and Dolphins

About

A rare and highly-sculptural French 19th century jardinière with two putti flanking each side, a hippocampus (mythical sea horse, which is typically depicted as having the upper body of a horse and lower body of a fish) decorating each end, supported on a base of four mythical dolphins. The jardinière is made of "régule", an alloy primarily of zinc, which was commonly used for French sculpture in the 1860s and 1870s.
