Continental Oak Pedestal Fern Plant Holder with Insert
A fine old fern or plant holder! This eye-catching piece is done in beautifully turned oak. The tiered base is supported by 4 bun feet and has a turned post. The plant holder portion has turned posts and beautifully finished top. The metal insert appears to be aluminum and has a gold finish. It looks fantastic as a centerpiece or in an entryway atop a table or pedestal.
This piece stands 14 5/8" tall. The top diameter is 12 1/8", and the base diameter is 8". The metal insert is 8 1/4" tall, has a top diameter of 10 1/2" and tapers to a base diameter of 6 1/4". We've displayed this piece with standard 7"-8" plants from our local flower shop using a fern or peace lily, and it looks spectacular. You can also replace the metal insert with your favorite metal or pottery jardiniere for a really beautiful accent.
Condition is excellent with a rich, warm patina. The metal insert has a bit of discoloration on the interior bottom as shown but is otherwise very nice.
We believe this piece to be of Dutch origin, early 1900s.
This plant stand weighs 5 1/2 lbs before packing, and shipping will be via FedEx Ground/Home Delivery, insurance included.
