Though dating from the late 19th Century, this antique French jardiniere feels strikingly up-to-date in its almost-minimalist combination of cobalt blue porcelain and sleek, understated gilt bronze mounts. The wide body of the jardiniere is decorated only with gilt bands around its top and bottom, and a band of gilt bronze beading around its rim. The blue colour of the body is a nod to the porcelain manufacturers at Sevres, who, in the 18th Century, pioneered the technique which produced the colour. It is mounted with twin gilt bronze handles in the form of scrolling acanthus leaves. The circular base of the jardiniere is set on four gilt bronze feet, again in the form of acanthus leaves.
