Kowloon Chippendale Planter
Part of the HenFeathers Grand Manor collection of estate planters, urns and fountains, the Kowloon Chippendale planters are an elegant sophisticated design statement. The term Chinese Chippendale in architecture is applied to a specific kind of railing or balustrade that was inspired by the "Chinese Chippendale" designs of cabinetmaker Thomas Chippendale. The infill between the top and bottom rails and the vertical supports is a series of interlocking diagonals, inspired by Chinese fret work designs. The design was popular in the United States in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Prominent examples of the style exist on the wing terraces and uppermost balustrade at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.
A sophisticated design, a great container to frame a formal area of a garden or roof terrace, perfect for traditional and contemporary settings alike. The Kowloon Planter is a timeless elegant estate planter for small trees, shrubs, raised bulb beds or mixed arrangements.
