A Golden Spring - Part III

Trio of Scottish Hand-Hammered Brass Plates with Stylized Tulip Motif (LEO Design)

The Spring Season is the Tulip Season. While they are not the first flowers to emerge through the cold, they are arguably the most stately. No blossoms put-on quite the show as an abundant chorus of tulips—tightly packed and swaying gently in a chilly breeze. And, while an artful gardener can create a sophisticated palette of shades, they are also wonderful when presented as a bold, luxuriant statement in one perfectly-selected color.

The trio of plates, shown above, repeat the stylized motif of tulips—blossoms and leaves. They were hand hammered in Scotland (c. 1900) and, like the flowers themselves, they know that there is power in quantity. To learn more about this trio, please click on the photo above.
