This fine bone china tray provides the perfect frame for a delightful study of purple clematis flowers. Renowned for its vigour and climbing ability, the clematis also produces a profusion of vivid purple flowers that bloom for much of the year. At 170mm by 130mm (6½ x 5 inches) the tray would bring colour and beauty to any setting, and is as practical as it is decorative. It is also possible to add a message of your choice to the base of the tray, to make a truly personal gift.
Cast in bone china, fired and carefully glazed, the tray is then passed to our artist, who creates the astonishingly lifelike clematis flowers and foliage entirely by hand, using special ceramic colours and the finest brushes to capture every detail of their delicate beauty. It takes not only time but several applications of colour to create the finished image, and after each one the tray must be fired in the kiln to seal the image into the glaze. Finally, the finishing touch is to add a band of 22 carat gold to the rim and foot of the tray.
This attractive tray is available only from Bronte’s website, and cannot be found in any shop or online retailer. It’s also possible, if you or someone you love has a particular fondness for a different flower or flowers, to commission a unique design of your own using the same tray; for more information see our commissions page or contact us to discuss your requirements.
