Catalogue Note

These charming fruit baskets with playfully placed animals including snails, salamanders and frogs became a staple of the workshop of Giovanni della Robbia, son of Andrea della Robbia. Although perhaps not conceived as a collection, the present composition of the larger centrepiece with the smaller baskets make for an attractive ensemble.
