19th Century Empire Gilt Bronze Antique Jardinière Planter, France

About

A finely cast piece executed in solid bronze that was perfectly chiselled, filed and chased into a crisp presentation, the small jardinière was then mercury gilded for a brilliant surface throughout. The powerful acanthus motifs squaring up each corner flank a repeating leaf-and-anthemion design around all three sides. The simple rectangular feet are brought to life with a recessed stipled ground and a raised-relief anthemion motif surrounding a tiny but beautifully detailed rosette. The lead or pewter insert retains an old green enamelling with losses from wear and moisture, though remaining perfectly serviceable for generations to come. It is one of those unexpected details for a well appropriated interior, where an element as simple as a planter can bring the timeless elements of exquisite craftsmanship together with historical depth to enrich a space.
