Late 18th Century English Faience Planter

$ 1,275
  • Description
    Fine quality English late 18th century faience planter or pot, with accompanying small porcelain stand. The hand painted image depicts a young couple handsomely dressed in bright colors, seated beneath a tree in a country setting (see image). A four banded gold trim decoration surrounds the circumference of the top, while a smaller band adorns the bottom border. Two gold and white lion heads protrude on each side to complete the decoration. A script letter "S" and a script lower case "a" are the markings on the underneath. It is in excellent condition with no cracks and no chips.
    The small stand is chipped on the underneath and has a faint hairline to the top surface.
    I also have listed an almost identical planter if someone wanted a pair. They both have the same marking on the underneath so obviously from the same maker. See Item Ref LU973214429961.
    Dimensions: 6 1/2" high (with stand)
    6 1/2" wide (end of lion handle knobs)
    4" diameter (bottom of jardinière)
    4 1/2" diameter (bottom of stand).
