The artichoke is one of nature's most interesting plants because of its many ''hearts'' grown to become a little cup -- the artichoke! This silk centerpiece is an amazing re-creation of the artichoke with meticulous attention to detail. It's interesting, and the natural green color will not detract from other decor. Yet, it stands alone quite beautifully. The planter has a brushed antique look, appropriate for this beautiful plant.
