This long rectangular planter was made in Italy in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s and has well detailed decorations on all four sides. The old terra cotta surface has a coloration or patination that resembles antique limestone or the highly weathered carrara marble used in Roman monuments, fountains, and statues. All four corners are composed of winged cherub busts which are connected by thick and detailed garlands of fruit and intertwined crinkled ribbons. The garlands are held up by torchere style supports, terminating in stylized Bernini dolphin legs. The top and bottom moldings of the planter are a repeating geometric pattern in the Classical style. Measuring over 4 feet in length, this beautiful Italian planter is ready to adorn any sunroom, hallway, or sun-drenched patio.

*For purposes of in-store display, the planter has been suspended off the floor by a pair of limestone blocks. The planter will rest flush on the floor under normal set up.*

CONDITION: Varying patina, some minor splits and overall wear as seen in photos. Structurally sound.
