The jardinière, translated from the French feminine form of ‘gardener’, started to be produced in silver in the UK towards the latter part of the 18th Century, and was designed to be used as the centrepiece for a table to display flowers. Examples manufactured in the UK are however quite rare to find, with the majority available brought over from Europe and import marked here, especially those made in the Art Nouveau taste, which predominantly originate in Germany. They are beautiful and usable pieces, which look wonderful when filled with a flower display.
