Antique Urns/Jardinieres

We have always been fortunate to be able to amass a sizeable collection of Antique Urns and Antique Jardinières (urn-like planters specialized to hold floral designs and greenery). The materials used over the course of several centuries include everything from precious bronze to carved wood, and from exquisitely selected stone to finely painted and glazed ceramics. Whether you collect artifacts like Antique Urns or Antique Jardinières, or perhaps use antique planters simply to accentuate your décor, you will do well to follow in the footsteps of our ancestors who first designed the Jardinière to bring a reminder of the bounty of the earth indoors so it could be admired all year long!   Inessa Stewart’s Antiques Wholesale Antique Furniture Stores!  OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
