Description

This pair of very large Copeland earthenware plaques was produced in 1884-1885, as demonstrated by the signature of the artist. The plaques portray fine still life scenes: one depicts an abundant display of flowers, while the other portrays four vases laden with flowers being visited by a pair of doves, or love birds. The colour palette of both plaques is bright and vibrant, and the painterly manner is fluid and accomplished.

Both plaques are contained within ormolu frames, both are impressed to the reverse ‘Copeland’, and one is signed and dated lower right ‘R. G. Strutt. 1884-1885’.

Frame: Height 71.5cm, width 61cm, depth 3cm
