Large Antique Istrian Cistern Planter

We are currently closed for the Spring Season and will reopen the Showroom in the Summer at our new location. Thank you and stay tuned!
Impressive Large Antique Istrian Stone Cistern with a demi-lune front and straight back allowing for the cistern to rest flat against a wall and collect rain water. The curved front is decorated with spiraling vine-work along the top and deep foliate carvings around a pair of mythical griffins on either side of a vase.

The back of the planter has a carving of an armorial shield with a standing lion. Very old and primitive carvings. Some restoration to the lower area of the planter.

In addition to being used as a planter, this antique vessel could also be used as a fountain basin. Lovely patina with moss.

Imported from England
