A 19th-century flower pot, decorated using the repoussé method. Derived from the French pousser, or “to push forward”, the repoussé technique has been used throughout the history of metalworking, and was particularly popular in Europe during the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. This artistic style is done on malleable metal, which can be shaped by hammering or punching from the back or inside of the object, creating a design in low relief. That design can then be completed by adding additional definition and detail on the front of the artwork, often created using engraving methods. Many metals are suitable for repoussé work, ranging from gold, to steel, to pewter. This English flower pot is covered in repoussé work, hammered into the brass body of the object. It features symmetrical floral motifs, which surround the entirety of the flower pot’s exterior – from base to lip. A great example of the tactile nature of repoussé metalwork, this flower pot is waiting to be surrounded by real life flowers, to compliment its own design.
