More gorgeous items have arrived since my last posting of garden antiques for sale at the nursery. Actually, most of the earlier pieces I showed here are now gone ! To my amazement, we have had to ship large amounts to tasteful clients in Calgary, Winnipeg and Los Angeles . These people know that these unique pieces are unique and once they go, they are gone forever. Here is a smattering of our newest arrivals ….This is one of the nicest benches yet. It was made in Arras, France and bears the signature curved iron slats and paw-like feet of that region’s famous garden furniture. It measure 60″ x 32″ x 21″D and is $1800.00 Canadian dollars. Here is a ‘faux bois’ water fountain , also from France . it is plumbed to be permanently hooked up to water, somehow….. but could be reworked to use a recirculating pump. It is made of cement, and measures about 3′ tall. It is $1500.00
I love this very rare old tin urn. It is American, with a beautiful verdi gris finish . Quite lightweight. I wouldn’t plant right in it, but use a tub or liner inside to prevent splitting. It is 40″ H x 28″ D and is $1950.00 . Remember : the Canadian dollar has fallen more than 25% this year…… try going ‘shopping’ !
I really don’t want to sell this – hopefully it will just sit here for years…..planted now with ferns. It is a very large faux bois cement planter from France. Measuring 38″ x 14″ x 14″, it will only get more beautiful with age .$1850.00
More to come ! But drop by and drool soon.
