This item is reserved for auction

Description:

This is a three piece cast metal and painted ceramic garniture set. Each piece features a ceramic body with Pansy flowers printed and painted on. The pieces' base and top are cast metal with faces, animals, and floral motifs. The two side urns measure 19"h x 7"w and the center clock measures 21.5"h x 7"w. Garnitures became popular during the latter half of the 17th century and remained in vogue throughout the 19th century. A very common placement is on the mantelpiece over a fireplace, but garnitures were very often placed on various pieces of furniture, and on ledges or niches around the walls of a room, especially over doors or above fireplaces.
