Pair of English Victorian Period Ceramic Jardinieres by Minton


These charming jardinieres are the work of British pottery company Minton (also known as Thomas Minton and Sons or Mintons Limited), perhaps the pre-eminent ceramicists of the English Victorian period in the 19th century. They are especially notable for the beautifully-molded lions' heads and feet which adorn the sides and bases of the jardinieres. They are bulbous in form, with a green flared rim, and each jardiniere is mounted with six yellow pilasters around its cobalt-blue ground body. Each pilaster features a lion's head, as well as rectangular panels of green decoration. There are several marks on the bases of the jardinieres, including a stamp reading 'Minton', a numbered stamp, and several other painted marks.
