This is an awesome piece and the artist did a wonderful job depicting the scene. He has hand painted a wooden ship aground along the sea shore, possibly waiting for the tide to come up and take her out to sea. Large mast with a purple sale blends well with the purple hue of the sky. He has added people on the deck of the boat and birds flying in the sky. In the distance he has added a mountain with cliffs that gradually slopes into the bright blue water. In the foreground he has added a pier with barrels. The artist has taken pride in his work and signed it. . IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE FAIENCE / MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
