Antique Porcelain French Jardiniere - Cache Pot Romantic Scene ~ Exquisite Large Antique Porcelain French Jardiniere - Cache Pot. This desirable piece would be a lovely addition to any room. It has an enchanting scene of a young couple playing a flute while sharing a sweet embrace. They have a basket of flowers resting nearby, and look as though they are enjoying a quiet spring day while tending to the goat and sheep that are laying at their feet. The details of their precious faces are amazing. Stunning gold gilt accents this scene. The rest of the pot is painted in a matte type glaze of charcoal blue/grey. The back of the pot has a glorious cross in gold gilt. This is absolutely beautiful. We are proud to offer this amazing piece to you at "Texas Hill Country Treasures". ~~~Measurements~~~ 8.5" H & 8 3/4" W Opening measurements: 8.5" Across. ~ There are no chips or cracks. There is wear to the gold gilt at some points around the scene on the front, as well as to the rim. The matte finish does show some wear, although it isn't chipped, but it is rubbed and/or marked as this piece was a utilitarian item and not solely for display. The inside also has some water marks from years passed. Otherwise, in excellent condition, and still exquisite.
