Figure of a girl picking grapes. The girl is standing beside a twining vine form. Her left hand is on the vine. In her right hand is a bunch of grapes. There is a yellow basket at the foot of the vine. The girl and the vine are predominately white glaze with touches of gold decoration and enamel peach tones on her face and arms, brown hair, floral designs on the girl's skirt, lavender grapes and green leaves. Touches of applied string-like clay in lavender and yellow. Crackle in the glaze.
