Decorate a table or a shelf with this elegant antique planter. Created in the “Faïencerie de Gien” France, circa 1890 and round in shape, the large cachepot with a scalloped rim stands on four curved feet; it is further embellished with two handles on the sides with acanthus leaves. The porcelain planter is decorated with hand painted, traditional floral and leaf decor. The unique porcelain piece, signed Gien on the bottom, is in excellent condition with rich painted colors in a Classic two-tone blue, brown and enamel accented. The Faïencerie de Gien is a ceramic factory in the Loire Valley, founded in 1821 by Thomas Edme Hulm. Amongst the many faience manufacturers in the 19th century, the reputation of Gien is equal to those of the factories of Creil, Longwy or Sarreguemines. Gien further developed the technique of emaux cloisonné, which originated in Longwy back in 1870. Measures: 18″ W x 14 D x 12.5 H.
