Description
Lion Paw/Griffin Foot Arras Jardinière - France circa 1890 * France circa 1890 * Wrought and cast iron with wire work planter top * Exemplifies meticulous hand-craftsmanship * Durable white painted finish adds to its charm * Exquisite Lion or griffin foot example * Typically used in a Conservatory or Orangerie * W: 108cm (42.5") H: 95cm (37.4") D: 31cm (12.2") If you appreciate unique antique pieces, this Late 19th Century Lion Paw/Griffin Foot Arras Jardinière is a true gem! It really is a remarkably impressive conservatory or garden jardinière of fabulous scale and combines artistry, history, and functionality making it a captivating addition to any space. This exquisite jardinière hails from Arras, a town in France. The Arras garden furniture style emerged around 1840 when one of the metalworking companies in the town of Arras, Grassin-Baledans began specializing in creating artistic ironwork for garden furniture and other ironwork for gardens. The Arras pieces are entirely hand-forged and riveted, crafted with metal tubing and flat metal. These were intended for the high-end market, catering to the privileged classes who were embracing outdoor living. The jardinière is made of wrought iron and boasts a sinuous design, reflecting the high quality expected from Arras pieces. Notably, it boasts four original lion’s paw feet, which indicate a mid-19th century origin. These lion’s paw feet were later replaced with a sleeker hoof design after 1900.
