Fritillaria enamelled copper flower with wooden base

2 in stock

Description

Enamelled copper flower, based on fritillaria or fritillaries, with a wooden base.  The base is made from wood and has been stained dark oak colour.   The flower and leaves have been enamelled with vitreous enamel – the flower is white with a creamy pattern.

I have two enamelled fritillarias that are slightly imperfect. If you place an order, please say which you’d prefer.

One – this flower is slightly discounted because I’m not 100% happy with it.  There isn’t anything really wrong with it, but it has a couple of areas that are just a little below standard.  One area is the petals – they haven’t bent at quite the right angle and the enamel at the top edge is uneven.  The other area is the leaves which show some brazing dark marks on the enamel.

Two – this flower is slightly discounted because the enamel at the top of the petals has chipped slightly when the petals were shaped, plus the inside of the flower has uneven enamel coverage.

I’ve tried to show the issues in the photos, but if you’d like to know more, please contact me.

The flower is about 19cm tall.

This flower (a fritillaria) featured in the Emporium section of Country Living magazine (‘February 2021’ issue).

The inside of the flower and the back of the leaves may have some marks or uneven enamel from how they’re supported in the kiln during enamelling.
