These decorative vases in the shape of trees with landscapes at their bases feature stylishly dressed young boys raiding eggs from the nests of roosting birds. They underscore the intimate relationship between man and nature - a world in which nature is presented as an idealized playground for humankind.

The closely observed details of nature -- the bird in the tree, the squirrel, the dog on the ground, or the animated gesture of the excited young "hunter" -- all suggest a new level of realism in Staffordshire production.
