Product Description

A monumental porcelain Jardinière urn with stand, attributed to Christopher Dresser and made by Minton in 1882.

The jardinière is decorated with orientalist motifs and stylised flowers.

As well as the colour of blank porcelain, the jardinière is decorated with a colour palate of just four colours: black, gold, greyish blue and a coral pink. The painting is by hand, displaying striking orientalist motifs and stylised flowers.

Like the works of Christopher Dresser, the Jardinière has numerous influences. Its size and splendour is a symptom of an Aesthetic Movement, which prioritised Art for the sake of Art. The floral patterns are redolent of the Japanese influence on western decorative Arts during the late 19th century. Dresser’s only visit to Japan from 1876-1877, had a profound effect on his own aesthetic sensibilities and is partly credited with the emergence of the Anglo-Japanese style.

The condition of the jardinière is good, though there is a significant hairline crack running down one side. In parts, there is some minor wear to the gilt, as well as the crazing one expects of ceramics of this age.
