Pomona, the Roman goddess of fruits, was associated more generally with orchards and gardens in the Renaissance. Here, she is surrounded by flowers and gardening tools: a spade, a watering jar, and a rake. A garden with a fountain appears in the background. Like the pruning tools displayed nearby, the dish attests to the nobility’s growing interest in horticulture at this time. The scene is based on an engraving by Philis Galle (1537–1612) after a composition by Marten de Vos (1532–1603).
