The jardiniere is decorated in deep relief with an elaborate scene of a battle between Roman? Soldiers with swords and shields and barbarians on horses with clubs and spears. One barbarian wears a stag head with full antlers. A sign in the scene has 2PQR on it, meaning unknown. Incised 505 on the underside.Has a spider web crack on base which does go through to the inside. Otherwise, very nice antique condition with good finish and color. Probably made in Germany, possibly by the Merkelbach and Wick Company.
