19th Century Imari Jardiniere with Bronze Mounts is an exquisite example of the fascination with all things Oriental that occured in Europe several times over the past two centuries.  It was considered in high taste to have impeccably hand-painted Japanese porcelains such as this, especially when fitted in France and England with cast bronze surrounds and mounts to make them even more opulent.  It is amazing any of them survive in such condition as this example, considering the long and arduous sea voyage around the Cape of Good Hope that was required to get them to the European market clamoring for their style!

Circa 1880s

Measures 10H x 13.5W x 9D
