A FRENCH ANTIQUE SÈVRES STYLE TURQUOISE PORCELAIN ORMOLU JARDINIÈRE, CIRCA 1900
This jardinière is a stunning blend of delicate porcelain and ornate gilt bronze. The porcelain bowl, in a serene sky blue hue, sits gracefully atop a detailed gilt bronze base. Every inch of the base is adorned with intricate designs—acanthus leaves, swirling patterns, and elegantly crafted cartouches, creating a mesmerizing visual spectacle.
The porcelain bowl itself is a canvas of artistic beauty. Both sides delicately painted with flower bouquets, all enclosed within ornate raised gold borders. The top of the bowl is a showcase of elaborate bronze artistry, featuring an intricate design of scrolls, leaves, and decorative elements, complemented by leafy handles that gracefully cascade down its sides.
Together, these elements create a jardinière that seamlessly marries the gracefulness of porcelain with the opulence of gilt bronze, making it a remarkable piece of artistry and craftsmanship.
