    The present model jardinière has often been associated with Jean Michel Frank, as the designer is known to have selected garden furniture from the A. Durenne (Fonderie du Nord) catalogue for his decorative schemes. In addition to producing garden furniture, A. Durenne also created larger outdoor works. A 1924 advertisement listed balconies, balustrades, columns, and electric street lamps among their wares.
