A collection of antique wares provides a warm backdrop for this still life of oranges and cracked walnuts. A precariously placed plate balanced with a peeled orange serves as a bright focal point in this classical painting.

Thank you so much, Wodjo! Oranges and Spode are always a great combination which is enhanced amongst the warmth of mellow antiques. Jeanne
