Dark and dramatic ceramic, antique jardiniere and pedestal by Aurelian Weller, estimated to have been made late 19th century or early 20th century. Together, they stand 38 inches tall. The jardiniere is about 16 inches wide.
The planter and pedestal both feature painted peony flower decor. Both pieces are in good condition for their age, though there is evidence of wear on both and the pedestal has areas of restoration. There is crazing and speckling throughout both pieces, as well some small spots of glaze loss and other imperfections. The base of the jardiniere has a crack near the hole that has been stabilized.
The pedestal has a few inch section that has been reattached, as well as some restored cracks - please see pictures. Still, this does not detract from its beauty and visual impact.
