A lovely professional studio, hand-painted cabinet plate with mountain columbine floral decoration. The beautiful columbine blossoms in shaded dark to light purple, white and yellow are set against a background of pale creamy yellow and lavender. The plate measures 7 1/2" across with a simple gold edging.
The plate is signed by the artist and carries the studio mark "Hand Painted - Caine's Studio - Akron, Ohio". The white-ware blank is marked Thomas - Serves Bavaria", circa 1908-1939. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Wonderful subject matter.
