Large Antique Belgium Embossed Copper Claw Foot & Lion Head Rings Fireplace Pot Planter
Exceptional antique Belgian copper and bronze pot with stunning embossing throughout. One side features the coat of arms of Antwerp, Belgium with its famous lions, topped by the royal crown and the other side has a scenic view of sailing ships, possible referring to Antwerp's famous river Scheldt and the port of Antwerp, which has been of strategic importance since Napoleon Boneparte. The bronze handles are in the form of lions heads and have rings while the feet are beautiful claw feet. This extraordinary antique piece was most likely used for kindling next to a fireplace or could have been used as a planter.
This is one of the nicest decorated and largest pots that we've seen and the construction is excellent with rivets throughout.
