Description: There are three different Garden Seats: Hexagonal, Barrel shape and 100 Antiques (also barrel shaped). This pair of hexagonals are just about the same size,19″ tall and they weigh about 35 lbs., second only to tanks. Our dog Molly is watching over these beautifully decorated seats. Two sides and the top have the flowered circles with cutouts into the hollow interior and the other 4 sides just have the Canton scene. The tops have the rain cloud border and the bottoms are unglazed. Six flowers decorate around near the top and there are 12 bamboo leaf groups circling near the bottom. All garden seats have raised knobs and these seats have 96 on each. The knobs are both decorative and probably have the function of preventing chips or cracks if they are bumped into.
All garden seats are rare and we would rank them in this rarity order among themselves: Barrel-least rare, Hexagonal next & 100 Antiques the rarest.
