Early 20th Century Family Noire Black Chinese Porcelain Planters With Goldfish & Phoenix Birds - a Pair, on Rosewood Stands
A pair of exotic Phoenix birds dominate amongst chrysanthemums and peonies on one side with long tails that wrap around the back of the body of the planter to the back with two small white birds fluttering around. The trees are traditional Chinese style, as are the rocks and landscape.
Five expressionable orange goldfish swim amongst the green pond weed & lily pads inside the planters. The jardinières sit upon solid rosewood stands, the legs of elegant cabriole form, shaped as abstract dragons. The circular stretcher forms a stable platform. Slightly concave unmarked bases.
First Quarter 20th. Century. Possibly Late Qing.
A superb pair of planters obtained from a high end estate collection here in Florida - an individual widely travelled in the Orient.
Suitable for hallways, lobbies, foyers, formal spaces and living areas - or wherever you like.
