About

Beautiful set of antique French jardinières with zinc leaves resembling the aloe plant. The leaves were taken from barn roofs where they were used to prevent birds from roosting. These are wonderful examples of French folk artistry at its most elegant. The Large centre planter may be purchased separately for $1950 and the two smaller matching planters may be purchased as a pair for $3500 ($1750 each).
