In the manner of true Pique Assiette, the pieces were broken or hand cut to decorate a new Italian terra cotta garden pot. This beautiful very old and rare Coalport scenic plate, depicting an Egyptian water scene, features heavy gilding and turquoise enameling. Since the backstamp was on the reverse side of the scene, I cannot show. I added a Royal Pottery yellow plate, genuine turquoise pebbles, art deco brass and gold tone findings to finish. The whole is done with gilded grouting for a true archeological effect. The pot has been treated so that it can be outside without discoloring or mildewing and has a drainage hole. Measures 7.5"H x 8.5" across the top. I can see this beautifully displaying a lush peace lily, for example!
