Huge Antique Victorian Staffordshire Roses Jardiniere
This magnificent antique flower pot features, on all four sides, lush bouquets of pink and red roses amid fern green leaves. It's big enough hold a massive plant -- so large, in fact, that you could also use it to chill several bottles of wine.

Designed with a graceful undulating shape and scallops at both top and bottom, the jardiniere measures 9 1/2 inches across, stands 7 3/4 inches high and has a lot of heft, being of Staffordshire Ironstone. As you know, this is very sturdy stuff, despite its delicate appearance. There's been minor flaking of the wide gold-lustered edge and age-appropriate scuffs are on the base, but I can't find any flaws in the china. A couple of small discolored areas are under the glaze, so they were original to production.

Acquired from a dealer in Cambridgeshire, this beauty has an elaborate hallmark that includes an extremely determined-looking phoenix rising from flames and the initials NWAO and YWAO, along with the words "Staffordshire Iron Stone". Being a specialist in jewelry, rather than ceramics, I haven't yet been able to identify the maker. If you happen to know which of Staffordshire's 100+ potteries of Victorian times created this treasure, I hope you'll tell me.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
