The Antique Jardiniere is basically a very decorative Plant Stand usually from the Victorian era and is very elegant in design. The word Jardiniere is french and means a feminine form of gardener, so they designed these with the Victorian Lady in mind and made them quite feminine and elegant looking usually with out-swept legs and inlay or gilt decoration. Although they are quite fine looking, they are surprisingly quite robust and can usually hold quite a good sized plant or vase of flowers. They also make the ideal lamp tables as they are tall in height, so will display lots of light in your room. They are mainly constructed in Mahogany and Satinwood but some of the later examples can be seen in oak. Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.
