Glazed in rich browns, ochres, and yellows, and highlighted with gold, à la Hoentschel, such ceramic pears and are an excellent example of the ceramist’s masterful use of his mediums. Pears such as this one were created in great numbers by Grittel, who specialized in the creation of figurative sculptures taking organic shapes.
