DESCRIPTION:  Four heart-shaped pairs of graceful vinescrolls structure the entire composition of this delightful antique Agra. Along with them are various flora like shrubs and palmettes, some of them stylized in the shape of vases. The different colors - browns, golds, and purples - are all set off against an ocean of blue-green ground. The gold-ground border reverses the effect of the field, while an outer guard of blue green reprises the field in a beautifully calculated alternating play of hue and color.
