Creamware painted in enamels

Cream-colorued earthenware, moulded, covered with very slightly blue-tinted lead-glaze, and painted in blue, turquoise-green, green, yellow, orange, flesh pink, puce, purple, red, yellowish-brown, and black enamels. The closed underside has a circular ventilation hole in the middle. The figure is supported by a square base with straight sides, a moulded top edge, with a puce line running round the top. Autumn is represented by a fair-haired girl standing in front of a grassy mound with rococo-style scrolls picked out in puce and turquoise-green. She steps up onto the mound with her right leg, which is bent, and has her left on the ground. She holds a basket of fruit in her right arm and holdes a piece of fruit in her right hand which rests on her breast. She wears a white broad-brimmed hat with a blue hat-band and edge, a white blouse, an orange bodice, a white apron, and a white skirt scattered with puce leaves and green spots.
