one-of-a-kind 
for sale

Photo above is a rare moment for The Romantic Garden Company.  We don't do surrealism on our web banners. But there it is, a box hedge from an old gardening job, isolated to do backup for Apollo. Dare we say it, this God is for sale.  He is made of cast iron,  probably 100 years ago. I found him at a junk shop and had Delta Welding do a full day rust removal job.  They then  baked in the electric blue paint which remains impervious to even Kelvin Scale heat. Apollo, or his torso,  is an example of one-of-a-kind objets d'art that is available for garden focal points, or for decorations with more than one meaning.  14.5x19.5  

1700's terra cotta pot from  castle in Scotland

This came to me in the 1990's  from an antiques dealer in Summerland who had just returned from a buying trip in England. This pot, which is in two pieces, can easily hold a 15-gallon plant. The artistry in the wreath, the scalloping and leaves at the rim are breathtaking. The authentic aging,  the influence from Roman classical and  Palladian architecture, shriek an identity  I  believe is rare. The white clay is a sign it was made in England. This can be a garden ornament or antique treasure. Or both.
