The artist has truly captured the likeness of a group of plums hanging heavily from the branches when he painted this pitcher. He has used deep purples for the plums accenting them with lighter shades to give the impression of the sun glistening off them. He has added beautiful green and brown leaves and stems with the fruit and has carried this motif around the front of the pitcher to the other side. The hob nail handle and rim have been painted with gold. This is truly a wonderful piece of art work, the detail is just phenomenal. I'm surprised the artist did not sign it somewhere! There are no hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
