‘I have so often heard Mr. Woodhouse recommend a baked apple. I believe it is the only way that Mr. Woodhouse thinks the fruit thoroughly wholesome.’ Emma, Jane Austen.
To mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of Jane Austen’s older sister, Cassandra, Jane’s House planted an orchard in her name. It is thanks to Cassandra that we have an image of thenovelist hanging in the National Gallery, and glimpses of the love and encouragement they gave to each other in letters where Jane also details flowers and fruit growing in the garden.
In Austen’s Orchard, plump plums, and matt-ochre coloured Ribston Pipin apples dangle temptingly from branches as ghostly gooseberries peek through the thicket over rings of kitchen garden strawberries, arching one over another in a tumble of cadmium reds.
Adapted from Moorcroft’s description
Designed by Emma Bossons, Austen’s Orchard Vase comes in a limited edition of 15.
