This small still life painting was exhibited in Sylvia Sleigh’s first solo show, held in 1953 at the Kensington Art Gallery in London. The ribs of the elegant decanter correspond to those of the adjacent white basket; the latter brims with fruit. The containers rest on a reflective ornamental tray, which was placed, for purely compositional reasons, on a divan upholstered in fabric with figural and foliate motifs. Using predominantly warm hues and a variety of embellished objects, Sleigh created a pleasant arrangement of patterns and forms.
