An absolutely incredible, rare large scale French majolica planter, by renowned French majolica producer Five Lilles, crafted circa 1890. 

With its stunning design, unique cut out details, gorgeous handles and classic vibrant majolica finish, it is truly a a functional work of art and heirloom decor piece. 

Please note there are two planters available, but sold individually based on condition.

While both are remarkably preserved, one of the planters has two interior hairline cracks, and is indicated as “good” condition in the variant drop down menu. 

 

NOTES:

Fives-Lille's majolica began with Antione Gustave De Bruyn, a fourth-generation potter hailing from Belgium. In 1864, he ventured to Fives-Lille, a northern French community, aiming to prosper in the pottery trade. By 1887, art pottery and the increasingly popular majolica were integrated into the company's offerings. Majolica swiftly became the preferred material for crafting humidors, jardinières, vases, and umbrella stands. The company's receipt of a silver medal at the 1889 Universal Exhibition in Paris underscored its remarkable achievements.
