In the manner of true Pique Assiette, the pieces were broken or hand cut to decorate a new Italian terra cotta garden pot. The lush floral Crown Staffordshire Maytime pattern is mixed with Roslyn Whispering Grass, Phoenix and an unknown Czech lustrewares in pink and green, with a gold filigree transferware china at the crown, hand made lampwork glass beads in pink and green and cultured pearls. Two backstamps -- one of Maytime and the other Phoenix. A reticulated tab handle finishes the archeological effect. The pot has been treated so that it can be outside without discoloring or mildewing and has a drainage hole. Measures 5.25"H x 6.25" across the top. I can see this beautifully displaying pink Cyclamen, for example!
