ERNEST CHAPLET AND FREDERIC HEXAMER "The Harvest Large barrel vase in dark brown stoneware, decorated with three naturalistic harvest scenes forming a rotating frieze. The figures and nature are modeled in high relief: two young women picking grapes on either side of a vine, a winegrower emptying the cut fruit from his hood into a barrel, a man holding his hood so that a harvester can pour the contents of her apron into it; trees and a farm chiseled in low relief in the background. Two green enamelled bands with gold highlights frame these agricultural scenes at the top and bottom.
