This Late Georgian-Mid Victorian Brass Jardinière Is Of Exceptional Quality And Craftsmanship Of Our Past! The top edge is rolled solid brass that graduates into a beautifully interwoven design that scout a Lion’s Head that holds a ring in its mouth on either side of the jardinière. The mid section is molded with a simple yet elegant pedestal.
We do believe this piece to be of the Late Georgian to the Mid Victorian Period. It is possibly of English origin. There are no manufacturer’s marks to be found on the piece. It is completely hand crafted and has a very regal presence.

PHOTOGRAPHY COMMENT: Sorry there was an omission of a photo depicting the lip wear on the top rolled edge. A photo of this condition will be uploaded at a later date or upon request.
CONDITION: Considering its antiquity, it has normal wear and some minor denting with some oxidation at the points of the intersecting woven design. There is some wear to the rolled lip at the top edge. It is in overall fine condition.
GENERAL CONDITION OF ANTIQUE METALS:
Some denting of antique metals generally attest to the authenticity of the antiquity of metals and is considered acceptable by collector and dealer standards. This is not to say that all metals that have dents are antique. Other than denting, there are other things to look for such as how it is assembled or joined or welded. Look for quality impressed maker's marks or other factory marks such as year dates and numbers which accompany some antique metals. Most antique hollow-ware metal pieces, such as jardinieres or planters, large bowls, tea kettles, etc will almost always have bottom interior oxidation. Oxidization both on the interior and exterior of a piece is also acceptable and is considered as "patina" by the purists.
