Calculate shipping cost
Circa 1875-1889 Large two-part French Provincial faience jardinière / planter, entirely hand painted, with its matching rimmed stand that can also be used as a jardin d'hiver stool, with the signature of Antoine Montagnon (1838-1899), owner of the Faiencerie d'Art in Nevers created in the 17th century, 1648. These two 19th century pieces, column base and jardinière, are decorated in the 17th century Nevers majolica manner in polychrome glaze, yellow, orange, aqua, blue, green tints on white with Italian, Moorish, Mythological and Persian influences, with nicely detailed heads of Pan as handles, panels of foliage and scrolls around the rims. Colors are vibrant and cheerful and the size impressive, circa 1875-1889. Antoine Montagnon bought the existing business in 1875 during the time of the decline of the potteries in Nevers. Despite the closing of centuries-old manufacturers in Nevers due to the English competition, especially Minton, he made Nevers Faience famous again. Because of his success, particularly due to the admirable reception of the public and the critics at the Great Expositions in Paris of 1878 and 1889, he was known as "The Renovator of the Faience of Nevers." He kept the tradition alive and his creative spirit was passed on future generations until 2015 when the Company closed. Dimensions of planter: D 19 in. x W 24 x H 19.75 Dimensions of column: Diameter 16 in. x H 23.4 . On display at our NYDC Showroom.
