Antique Napoleon Style Bronze & Opaline Jardinière with Hand Painted Key Pattern



Possibly unique and certainly handcrafted 19th century planter. Have you ever wondered why there are people that don't see the beauty in antique objects? We think there are a number of reasons, but one of them is that many people don't think about what it took to create/make an antique cabinet or light fixture or any other antique quality item for that matter. If you take this hand-crafted, gilt bronze jardinière with its mouthblown and hand-painted opaline glass liner and you would explain step by step and with some footage what it really took to hand-craft this unique and stylish work of art, then most people would probably start to 'see the light'. If you already have, then we think that the shape of this antique and the beauty of the combination of the materials of which it is made has already impressed you and maybe even lifted your spirit. The simple fact that various highly skilled craftsmen (a designer, a sculptor, a metal worker, a painter and a glass blower) all helped create this stunning piece (well over a hundred years ago) is amazing by itself. It certainly is something that you don't see anymore in this day and age. The time it took them to create this piece, it would make it cost a fortune in this day and age. For that reason too, this antique is great value for money. Especially when taken into account that perfect packing and also worldwide delivery from our store to your door in just 4 days are included in our price. Maximum width x depth x height: 18.8 x 7.7 x 5.9 inches. Maximum width x depth of the opaline glass liner: 11.4 x 6.7 inches. We have a passion for the unique, for quality, for stylish yet practical and for craftsmanship of years gone by. Your purchases will be extremely well packaged and we look forward to serving you (again). You can shop all our 1000+ listings by pushing the button that reads 'View All From Seller'.

Apart from the one chip close to one of the handles, in image 7, 8 & 9 you can see where the opaline glass liner once had a clean break that was restored. Especially the outside has been restored very well which is why this piece simply looks great.
