This is a fine example....possibly an unmarked Pickard HP Fruit Decor Plate. This beauty measures 9" wide and has been decorated and signed by the Pickard Artist, Maxwell Klipphahn [also known as Rean]. See Reed's Pickard Collectors Book for his bio. Klipphahn was noted for his superb Fruit decor pieces...and this is a fine example of his work at its best. Pickard decorated "Fruit" plates/items are extremely desirable by advance Pickard collectors. The Artist has done an excellent job showing life like ripening "Apples" on stem and leaf...with a extensive background of shadow leafing. Note the fine use of gold in the decorating....which enhances the Plates overall beauty. This gem is in very good condition....with the gold also being excellent. There are no nicks, chips, or other damage. Klipphahn has prominently signed the front of the Plate. The Plate was decorated on a "O.& E.G. Royal Austria" blank.
