Quite simply a very beautiful Antique, Victorian era, in the 'Faux Bois' style, (referring to the artistic imitation of wood or wood grains in various media), Terracotta Planter. This charming Victorian Planter, comes as a two piece pedestal planter with the base consisting of the huge glorious planter which sits upon a strong well constructed base of a trio of legs.
Both the legs and the planter itself have this gorgeous 'faux bois' style which is highly decorative and incredibly skilled work. The legs look 'tree like' and the planter which is large, have a floral stem repeat pattern and a delicate scalloped ridged top. All of which is very delicate work and hard to achieve, especially with Terracotta.
There is one large drainage and positioning hole in the base.
As with an Antique piece of this age and quality, it will have had congenial weathering and time colouration as you would expect from the time it has had from the elements either indoors or outside.
This comes is in two parts for ease of moving around your garden or home and requires a little assembly.
This piece of garden furniture is a good weight - but manageable by one fit person.

h 50cm - base of legs to top of scalloped rim
