Fruit Cluster

c. 1750
Artist/maker unknown, Dutch
This fruit cluster consists of two apples and three green leaves executed in deep relief. Many Delft fruit clusters and garlands were fashioned after ornamental woodcarvings on seventeenth-century Dutch wooden cupboards. A wide variety of these pieces survive today, including apples, pears, chestnuts, figs, grapes, and prunes.
