This is definitely a show pieces and would accent any room it is placed in. The artist has hand painted a wonderful scene of two shore birds standing on a lily pad. The birds have been hand painted in great detail with gray, brown and cream feathers, and red brown beaks and long legs. Beautiful white and pink water lilies are floating on the grayish water among green lily pads and cattails. The main motif has a velum glaze applied over it. Framing this beautiful scene is golden garland and swag transfers on a deep cobalt blue rim. This piece has a repaired chip on the underside of the rim that cannot be seen from the front and very hard to find on the underside.On the velum glaze there is a rough area that can only be seen when the piece is turned and looked at a certain way. These in no way this would detract me from purchasing this wonderful piece of art! The artist did sign the front "Duches". Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
