Exceptional Antique French Toleware Planter with the original painted metal insert. A rare find, most often these are seperated and no longer together after all this time. The planter is in the shape of a handled basket, with a cut-out pattern on both the base and the body of the piece. Each long side has a different classic French musical design hand painted on an oval cartouche. One side features a horn with arrows and flowering branches, the other side has a lyre with a pair of horns and flowering branches.
