To their right, and in the distance sits a larger parish with another steeple, more buildings and a river beneath. The scene is framed on both sides by large leafy tress in shades of bright green and Autumnal orange. The rear of the tea bowl has a single sprig of blue flowers, the inside a sprig of purple. Both pieces within a brown line rim
