Ship Planter | Fibreglass Planter
The ship planter is one of the highlights of our fibreglass range. It would almost look more suited to adorning a tabletop in a stately home than in a garden, but it is a beautiful piece, all the same. It is modelled on a particularly interesting item commissioned by the Royal Navy to commemorate a British victory against the Nawab of Bengal and his French allies in 1757 at Plassey. The motif comprises of various sea life and legends of the deep like Mermaids and starfish. It is distinctly ornate and conveys the impression of elegance and affluence.
Available in a ‘Faux Lead’, which is by far our most popular finish in our fibreglass planters range and will fit seamlessly wherever you decide to put them.. This finish will fit particularly well with traditional garden designs.
Compared to the materials they imitate, fibreglass is lightweight and easy to position, so you won’t have any trouble placing these exactly where you want them, especially when compared to authentic lead. Although you could use these as your run of the mill planter and place them in an overgrown garden or use them to hold brightly coloured plants or plants heavy in foliage, these were designed to be the main event. If the original planter was designed to commemorate a victory, why not place them in a location of prominence?
Comparatively, these planters are relatively large – and could hold a small tree or perhaps a lollipop bay tree. The smart, dark colour of the finish will easily match, blend or complement an existing colour scheme that you may have in place in your garden or outdoor space.
Although you may want to order these as single items, to maintain their ‘special’ status, you could also feasible use them to flank doorways or act as a boundary for garden paths. The battle of Plassey may have happened over 250 years ago in Palashi, India – but there’s no reason to can’t have your own memorial in your garden.
