Large Antique Silvered Bronze Jardiniere from France, 19th Century

There are also urns surrounded by demi- figures standing around the top with matching pierced urns and demi figures in the body of the jardiniere. Acanthus leaf s-scrolls are on the handles which have husks and beading on the outside. On either side of the handles are single flowers hanging from thin ribbons surrounding acanthus leaves. All this rests upon five feet.
