This Jardiniere/planter and mirrored tray is an elegant and stunning original french table centre piece in the Rococo style. The shiny silver finish on both pieces is worn in places from years of use which adds to their beauty. Both pieces are made of silver colour metal material, probably spelter and they are very heavy for their size. The Jardiniere has a detachable liner which is original, this has a small split on the bottom seam which could easily be soldered. Both the Jardiniere and tray stand on 4 scrolled feet and the decoration is mirrored on each side on both pieces, please see pictures 11 &12 which show both faces of the Jardiniere and liner.
The small flowers on the handles of the Jardiniere are repeated on the centre decoration of the tray. The mirrored tray is stunning and again has no visable makers mark or silver plate markings. I have not removed the wooden backing, however the glass appears original with light shadowing as you would expect from an antique glass, it has a few scratches to the glass and body of the tray commensurate with age, overall it is in lovely condition. The tray is a beautiful piece in its own right and could be used seperately.These items are in lovely original condition for their age however they are antiques and as such they do have the patina and wear as you would expect with 125 yrs of use, please note there are some minor scratches, please take a good look and zoom in on the photos which form part of this listing. A beautiful decorative addition to any table. Jardiniere Measures : Handle to handle - 12.5 inches.
