Swag and Acanthus Pot

Traditional English garden design, like in the rest of Europe, has been dominated by classical Roman designs and this highly ornate pot is a good example. The iconography used comes straight from Classical Antiquity and therefore can be read symbolically. A central theme of all the decoration is that of fertility- Cornicopias, Autumn fruits, Swags and acanthus leaves. The four Satyrs heads - wild bearded men with the legs and horns of goats represent the wild abundance of nature.

Each size of these magnificent pots has a different variation of these decorations and will hold their own in the grandest of settings.
Please note pot codes 2005 & 2007 do not have any relief decoration on their rims. See first image. Second image represents 2006 & 2010.
