A Tiffany Studios Marsh Marigold planter comprising a stylized design in high relief of the stylized flowers, reniform leaves and tangled stems of the Marsh Marigold (commonly known as Cowslip), a common wetland plant which grows in dense clusters and flowers in the spring. This heavy bronze planter in gold doré patina retains its original copper liner. The impressive scale affords ample room for an eclectic arrangement of plants and flowers.
In sales catalogues produced by Tiffany Studios at the turn of the 20th century, this piece was listed with other "Table Ferneries" or "Fern Dishes."
An example of the same planter once in the collection of Walter P. Chrysler, Jr. is now in the permanent collection of the Chrysler Museum of Art (accession no. 71.2690).
This planter is impressed with the firm’s mark and is numbered.
