The artist "Bani" definitely showed his talent on this lovely piece of artwork. He has painted the background in soft muted hues of pinks, yellows and greens. Upon this he has placed a bold but yet subtle stem of red poinsettias. The green leaves and stem of the flower almost blends into the green background but he has added enough dark definition so you still can tell what they are. The red petals of the flowers and yellow of the flower centers appear to be growing out of the plate, they are so lifelike. He has added just the right touch of white to the petals so it gives the impression that the sun is glistening off them. A gold rim completes this wonderful plate. There are no hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
Please see our white Poinsettia plate PLT1176 which would make a nice set.
Poinsettia, the Christmas plant, is popular in many American homes. With the introduction of long-lasting cultivars, the popularity of the poinsettia has increased significantly. It was introduced to the United States in 1825 by Joel Robert Poinsett, first U. S. ambassador to Mexico who obtained plants from the wilds of southern Mexico. This wonderful plate will allow you to have this amazing flower all year long!!
