Patinated Bronze and Metal Jardiniere the original discovered at Pompeii
The table is made of patinated bronze and patinated metal. It has a circular well which was likely intended as a brazier (holding hot coals) and/or a planter. The frieze is decorated with laurel swags linked by ram’s heads, raised on curved supports heading by sphinxes, cast with palmettes and ending in claw feet joined by a concave-sided triangular stretch. The original design is from a table unearthed in the excavation of Pompeii which was undertaken in the 18th century. The original is now in the Museo Archeologico di Nazionale di Napoli, Italy.
