Flower Stand (Jardinière)

Flower Stand (Jardinière)

c. 1800

mounts and supports by

Pierre Philippe Thomire

(French, 1751–1843)

Wood with gilt bronze mounts

Overall: 104.8 x 74.3 cm (41 1/4 x 29 1/4 in.)

Gift of Carrie Moss Halle in memory of Salmon Portland Halle 1960.94


Thomire was the most productive and famous bronze caster in Paris around 1800. The border of this flower stand was cast from the same molds used for a centerpiece signed by Thomire; therefore, the stand can safely be presumed to have been produced by Thomire as well.
