For your consideration is this Unique Antique Art Nouveau Hammered Brass Footed Jardiniere ~ Planter. This superb piece dates to the Art Nouveau Era, Circa: 1890-1910. This solid brass jardiniere boasts two large handles that depict flowing and organic twisted branches and foliage, the handles were most often lion faces, thus making this an extremely unique antique from the Art Nouveau movement. The body was meticulously hand hammered by a talented metal worker and the seams are intact and smooth. This jardiniere sits upon three claw or lion paw feet, elevating it 3" off the ground. Originally purchased by my Mother is the late 1960's from a Nursery ~ Antique shop, the original elegant script, hand written price tag is still intact on the base and reads $112.99. This jardiniere is in excellent antique condition with appropriate wear commensurate of age, no dents, breaks, etc. We were forced to clean and polish the brass as it was tarnished to a point that it no longer held the elegant look it deserves. If left untouched, it will again acquire a lovely soft patina of brass or if you prefer, an occasional polish will keep it bright and brilliantly breathtaking. This huge jardiniere measures 16" tall, 12-3/4" across the rim, 15" across the top including the handles and 39" (approx" if you include the clawed feet) around the body of the jardiniere. This planter sits level on the three elegant claw feet. This is a very desirable piece, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find these large jardinieres without damage or broken/repaired seams, etc. This jardiniere would be perfect in a French Country kitchen or plant a large fern or small tree and set in on your porch. This antique jardiniere it will look exquisite in any room of your home and fit into any decor with ease. You will love and cherish this jardiniere now and for generations to come. This would make a lovely wedding gift for the bride and groom's new home. Enjoy!
