This masterful portrait of Roses is true visual decadence, with so many variations of shadow tones, it is nearly impossible to describe each one. With every stroke of the brush, gorgeous rose petals come to life with such fluttering depth, one can nearly feel the softness against one's nose as one bends to inhale the sweet rose scent. These roses are just incredible, with white enameled highlights adding shimmer to the petals' edge. Leaves and branches are exquisite as well, painted in wonderful shades of green against a buttery yellow and cream background. Adding even more beauty is how the artist continued the exceptional hand painting on the outside of the Serving Berry Bowl…….Absolutely Beautiful!
Gorgeous Roman Gold adorns the wide band of each piece with beautiful embossed porcelain along the edges ~ the Master Serving Berry Bowl shaped with beautiful serving handles that adds true grace to the overwhelming beauty of this piece. This is an heirloom to treasure, and a stunning, classic rendering of the humbling beauty of the rose.
