#12251 - Victorian Porcelain Whimsey, Worchester Candelabra c1870s
Price: $12,000.00

Circa 1870s, by Worchester Porcelain Co. England. This porcelain candelabrum depicts a surreal landscape where the lilies have left the water to colonize the forest. They reach for the sun on brawny stalks, intertwining with leafy vines, using their pads as feet and tossing seeds from their pods as they grow. The frog and lizard are joined by various insects embracing this new growth as a welcome home. Worchester reinvents nature in this robust exotic depiction of fantastic botanical life. Very good condition with older restoration noted.
