19th century Planter | Modeling example

A pair of Regency mahogany planters of demi lune form, created in Britain between 1810 and 1820.


Each jardiniere is composed of a carcase of pine wood having a crossbanded mahogany top with the original demilune removable tin coated iron liner with a handle to the interior. The crossbanding may have been renewed during the 20th century due to water damage. The top leads down to a decorative gilded ovolo moulding having an egg and tongue enrichment. The rounded mahogany fronts sport three rectangular panels of curl mahogany veneer surrounded with half round gilt and red bole wooden mouldings. Each planter rests on four original cast paw shaped brass lion's feet. Each planter is 64 centimeters wide, 24 high and has a depth of 36 centimeters.


Here we present the description of one of the pair (the other is identical). The domain concepts are modeled in Neoclassica in a taxonomy of specializations of the CIDOC-CRM E22_Man-Made-Object. We also use an extensive selection of CIDOC_CRM concepts (entities and relations) to represent the rest of the data. The techniques and material are linked to corresponding AAT terms (presented as here with their URI’s and a label given for clarity). The measuring units are linked to the corresponding dBpedia ones, while ‘Great Britain’ is just a placeholder, since here we refer to the 19th period concept.
