Festive Fruits

A cornucopia of fruits and berries is part of Albright’s repertoire. How better to celebrate a festive occasion than with a cluster of lush grapes? Albright’s delicate scallion pin is graceful with a bite. More enigmatic is Vegetable Man. Striding forward with a pointy carrot head and swinging scallion arms, he is sure to provoke a reaction.
