Description

Holloware pieces in Maidenhair Fern feature embossed fern designs at the handle terminals.  The same embossing is found at the strap finials.  Although basically a rectangular shape, it is softly rounded.  Tea service pieces and pitchers have scalloped rims above a very pronounced neck.  They are very high waisted, then taper to a scallopd base.  Note that some bath pieces have a roiund footprint.
