Majolica Jardiniere / Cache Pot With Under Plate 'bamboo' Wardle & Co. C.1875 For Sale
During the Victorian era, well-to-do families indulged in hothouses and conservatories. This trend produced a number of garden accessories with decoration taking a leaf out of nature's book.This is one such item. A jardinere,cache-pot or flower pot concealer, made by William Wardle1876. Unmarked as much 19th centuryEnglish majolica was, but very much inthe style and subject of this factory's majolica products.
The cache-pot and under plateis elaborately moulded wit a simulated bamboo effect decorated withbamboo leaves andtwo bands of blue ribbon appearing to be tied in bows.
There is some crazing to the two pieces which is normal in this early wareand a glaze chip in the centre ofboth the cache-pot and the under plate (see photographs). The under plate also hasa fine tight hairline of 2 1/2" across the base, plustwo furthertight small cracks of1 1/2" and 3/4" both ofwhich run up the rim of the under plate. I have tried to show thesein the photographs. The underplate is notde-stabilized by these flaws.
