Lot Essay

The Christofle Archives, Paris, has Emile Reiber’s 1872 preparatory drawings for this model (with a yellow rather than blue ground) entitled ‘jardinière rectangulaire sur 4 pieds, avec décor de glycines sur fond jaune et motif de grecque damasquiné sur le pourtour’. A jardinière, apparently with blue ground like the present lot, was shown at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893 as a garniture de cheminée together with a pair of five-light candelabra described as girandole pomme de pin. A pair of candelabra of this model sold Christie’s, London, 18 September 2014, lot 265 (£25,000).
