Surprise! Spring has come, at least for now, and it’s time to get to work in the garden. Gardens and antiques go together. This majolica planter is one of a pair that sold for $3,105 at a spring Majolica Auction by Michael Strawser. The cachepots with underplates, decorated with lilies-of-the-valley, were made by George Jones & Sons, a Victorian English pottery.
