Wheelock Prussia marked items were manufactured by Reinhold Schlegelmilch, the same porcelain works that made the R.S.Prussia pieces. They were made for the Wheelock Pottery Company of Peoria, Illinois. Wheelock Pottery began in 1888 and produced fine pottery, ceramic and porcelain. By 1900 they were having porcelain pieces made for them and marked with their own Wheelock back-stamp.
This lovely plate consists of a transfer design of clusters and single roses in shades of pastel pink and yellow with abundant shaded leaves combining various color shades. Interspersed in the pattern are grass-like spears of heavy hand-applied gold enamel. The scalloped contour of the plate and cut-handles are highlighted with gold. The plate measures 10 1/4" across. The red and green back-stamp reads "Wheelock Trade Mark Prussia". There are no cracks, chips, repairs or decoration wear. An elegant plate by the maker of R.S Prussia.
