LabelThis fruit cluster consists of two apples and three green leaves executed in deep relief. Many Delft fruit clusters and garlands were fashioned after ornamental woodcarvings on seventeenth-century Dutch wooden cupboards. A wide variety of these pieces survive today, including apples, pears, chestnuts, figs, grapes, and prunes.
