Product Description

The fiery colour of the Bird of Paradise Flower makes a dramatic statement, set against the pure white bone china of the Abberley Comport. Native to South Africa, the Strelitzia flower takes its name from the duchy of Mecklenburg-Strelitz in Germany, the birthplace of Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III, whose name is now of course shared by the newest member of the Royal Family. However, it is more usually known as the Bird of Paradise Flower because of its resemblance to those beautiful birds with their brightly coloured plumage. In South Africa it is often called a crane flower. Prized as a house plant for its vivid colours, it can grow to more than three metres (ten feet) tall), and has been named as the official flower of the Los Angeles, America’s ‘city of flowers and sunshine’.


Bronte’s Bird of Paradise platter features three vivid orange and yellow flowers and their foliage, painted entirely by hand in a contemporary style. The platter, cast in pure fine bone china, is 380mm (15 inches) in diameter, with a 30mm (1 inch) contemporary foot, and is presented in a hand-made, silk-lined box. A personal inscription of your choice can be added by the artist to the base of the comport.


This stunning piece of ceramic art is a wonderful illustration of the dazzling effects that can be achieved by Bronte’s skilled painters, and, unlike the flowers themselves, the colour that it would bring to any room setting will never fade.
