PAIR OF REGENCY BRASS TOLE PAINTED CACHE POTS
Likely English, circa 1st quarter of 19th century
Item # C103207
The gilt stylizing over an ebony ground of these jardinière is expertly treated, the gentle incised guidelines still visible beneath the thin gilded rays. Likely a product from the English market circa the first quarter of the 19th century, the attractive form developed in the brass frame simulates bamboo with four legs that terminate over simple ball feet. They are of delightful dimension and a quite rare find.
Measurements: 12 3/4” W/D (at feet), 10 3/8” diameter (at top), 10 1/4” H
A few small dents, scuffs and scratches to early painted surface; we have not examined the paint under UV for restorations. Age appropriate pitting to surface of the brass.
