Roy-Keene, Adrianne – Large Seedpot with 20 Row Corrugated Design
Adrianne Roy-Keene is known for her intricately painted and carved miniatures. This jar is one of her larger seedpots. It is painted around the sides with an interlocking butterfly pattern. The wings of each butterfly connect to the next. However, it is the top of the large piece which is a signature design for Adrienne. The top is carved with 20 rows of spiraling triangular corrugated patterns. Each one is smaller until they reach the moth of the bowl. Look at the top of the piece, which is quite extraordinary with the precision of the carving. The piece is signed on the bottom with her name and a feather hallmark. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
