Ruby Red Vase and Stems

My favorite vase is a Ruby Red from the 1940's.  There was an entire set of dishes made with this lovely color.  As a child I would hold the plate to the sun and catch the light coming through, it was glorious.  I backlit this so that I could capture the radiance of the color.  This painting is scraped down quite a bit and I loved the results so I left them!
