The artist "M. Farcon" has done wonderful, realistic renditions of blackberries on this magnificent piece. Each fleshy lobe in a blackberry is actually an individual fruit, but they are joined at their bases. By using different shades of purple he has made each piece of the blackberry so defined it truly is its own separate fruit. Amongst the ripe delicious looking berries he has added one pink wild rose flower, unopened buds and green unripe berries on thorny branches. He has also intermingled green and brown leaves with the fruit. He has added a beautiful blue bird in flight towards the lower bramble of berries. Farcon has placed this awesome work of art on a light green, pink, yellow and cream background, tying the colors back to the fruit and flowers. Topping off this piece of art he has painted the handle, spout and stopper a brilliant gold. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
Plates PLT156 & PLT562 would accompany this piece beautifully.
