Such a fabulous find! Just in from France, this is a hand carved wood jardiniere that retains its zinc liner, and is in very fine condition. No leaking at all, so perfect to put to use for planter or as a potentially fabulous wine cooler for your next party. Will hold up to 8 full-sized bottles (see final photo). Usually the old zinc liners are split or have a hole or a solder has come undone over time, making them slightly less fun to use. This one is, I think, Swiss carved, Black Forest, and while that looks like a putti, note it's got a wine barrel and grapes. I can't wait to have a party and show this one off. Don't buy it away from me too quickly, please. Isn't it gorgeous!
Very good to excellent condition for age and type. A full 17" long, 9.5" wide and 9" tall, the liner has come out for a cleaning and as you can see, it still has lime deposits. Has been used. The wood is thick, very nicely carved and in great condition for age and type. No evidence of woodworm, no chips to speak of, though surely a leaf tip might be, so look it over in our clear large photos. This is one to die for!
