Excellent condition
Another still life by Wells which plays with pattern, form and colour. The monochromatic ivories and blacks are lifted by the mauve ground and areas of soft, rich blue; and the curving shapes of the china and statuette are set against the straight lines of caddy, tray and picture. There is also a whimsical note in the little statuette, poised as though she is inviting the spectator to take tea.
