Choosing antiques for the garden
From front gates to walled courtyards - consider adding antiques pots, urns, finials and statues to your garden.
This garden gate is made all the more beautiful with a large pair of cast iron Medici urns planted with iceberg roses.
Reconstituted stone finials are also lovely choice for gates and a classic way to emphasize symmetry and axis in your garden.
Here, a garden gate is framed with a pair of finials placed in the garden bed behind a lush green box hedge.
A long driveway provides an opportunity for pattern and symmetry. Mounted Medici urns are a timeless choice.
Moss covers an elegant garden urn planted with fuchsia pink begonias. A planter of this scale can make an impressive focal point where garden paths meet.
A classic French garden with topiary and hedging is the perfect backdrop for a weathered garden sculpture.
Anduze urns are quintessentially French and no matter how large the urn, they will always add a touch of elegance to your outdoor space. Here they are planted with oleander, boxwood and citrus. Lemon trees and kumquats are traditionally planted in Anduze urns.
Biot jars (on the right) are more like a piece of sculpture when left un-planted. This way they can be displayed both inside or in the garden as they can be moved easily.
