Spray of Roses by Bonnet*
Beautifully enamelled spray of hybrid tea roses by the Limoges Maitre Emailleur Pierre Bonnet.
Three classically formed open flowers in deep red, pink and golden yellow, and a fourth that is just beginning to unfurl its outer petals, form the main focal point of the picture.
Further unopened buds can also be seen together with leaves and stems in shades of green and bronze, all set against a muted softly coloured background.
Impressive detail throughout with an iridescent look to the flowers achieved with the use of gold and silver paillons set beneath the enamel.
Signed bottom right and framed in a very fine gilded frame with an oak leaf detail.
A good size at 49.5 cm high by 41.5 wide overall, with the visible image measuring 29 by just under 21.5 cm.
