This piece is one of four plates that form the latest collaboration between high-end contemporary homeware company, Melody Rose and the Wallace Collection.
Selecting iconography from a decoratively carved fifteenth century European saddle from the Arms and Armouries collection; Melody Rose has re-imagined its romantic theme and poetic verse across four beautiful collectable bone china plates. In the original carving two sweethearts have been separated by war and the woman is shown gathering mushrooms, possibly for a love potion or healing brew.
Materials: Made of English fine bone china with a touch of luxurious hand applied 22kt gilding
