This compote is very eye appealing with the nice color contrasts. The outer edge of the bowl is a peach luster color with a bright pink rim and white center. A black geometric design separates the peach and the pink backgrounds. Transfers of red roses green leaves with golden grapes that are highlighted in black have been placed between the pink and white backgrounds. The center of the bowl has a transfer of a red and golden yellow rose which tie in wonderfully with the rim design. The end is slightly scalloped and has a tan colored luster. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE IRONSTONE OR EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
