FINE VICTORIAN MAJOLICA WATER LILY JARDINIERE & STAND. Circa 1880
This richly-coloured Victorian Majolica Jardiniere & Stand, decorated with Water Lilies, dates from circa 1880.
The Jardiniers has a drilled base for drainage so can be used for direct planting , if required — the Stand catching any runaway water. The rich, liquid Majolica glazes give the pottery a wonderful colour and sheen. The lilac tone on the inside is gorgeous.
Both the Jardiniere and Stand are in good condition with no cracks, chips or restoration. All I can see is some rubbing to the high points on the Stand where the Jardiniere rests and a small glaze miss (in the making) to the outside edge of the top rim.
Filled with an Orchid, Aspidistra, Fern or an arrangement of fresh flowers this Jardiniere will come to life.
