Unfortunately, this jardiniere was broken into many pieces, but, I could not bear to throw it away, it was such a beautiful piece. So, glued it back together the best I could and now have an artificial fern setting in it to hide its many flaws. I don't know its origination, although it was in G'ma Lottie's house when I became part of the family over 50 years ago. I think that it belonged to her mother. When it was given to us back in the late 70's, I was told that it was over 100 years old. It's value is purely emotional !
