Gustave Vogt (1849-1937) partnered with Emilus Tressemanes in the early 1880's. In 1891 they purchased two small porcelains factories and produced high quality white-ware for export to the U.S.A.
This beautiful hand-painted plate was decorated in a home-studio environment by an established artist. The motif is that of stems of wild pink clover blossoms set among shaded green/brown 3-leaf clover foliage. In the foreground you will find a 4-leaf clover always sought after for its' "Good Luck" lore. The background consists of pastel pink, yellow, blue, green and gray hues all expertly blended together. The plate measures 9 1/4" across and is delicately edged in gold. It is stamped in green "T & V over Limoges over France", circa 1892-1907; it is also artist signed on the back "Purtill". There are no cracks, chips, repairs or enamel wear. A gorgeous plate with a rather rare subject design.
