Circa 1900, very stylish painted Chinese 3 tier jardinière stand. At the top there is an aluminium plant holder which is waterproof, with a wraparound gallery which rises and falls with open fretwork and has a curved edge left and right. The body of the top of the jardinière has open fretwork with typical geometric and floral Chinese patterns. Beneath the top section there is a wonderful shaped apron again with open fretwork and this continues around all sides. There are 2 further shelves, each with a panelled section and original stencilling (slightly worn) and a wraparound gallery with open fretwork. The whole piece stands on 4 elegant cabriole legs with carved flowers on some of the edges, rounded corners and finishing on an unusual raised foot. The whole piece has its original painting on it.
