This pattern is a simple one, but absolutely beautiful. It consists of small stylized floral branches over the center of the compote. The flowers are a wonderful raised turquoise enamel with red centers and gold with red centers and are attached to deep brown stems. The leaves are a darker turquoise and outlined in deep chocolate brown. The border is an alternating checkerboard of small squares of gold and rust brown. The check board pattern has raised enamel turquoise bands on each side. The floral pattern and banner are also around the base of the compote. There are no chips or cracks on this piece!! Some of the raised enamel is off of the bands around the edges, please see pictures for condition. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
