The artist has painted a wonderful rendition of daisies on this gorgeous scalloped plate. He has painted the flowers a beautiful white with yellow centers. The greenery is a mixture of green and yellow hues. Around the upper portion of the flowers she has used a sky blue background and the underside she has used a pink in background. He has completed this masterpiece with a golden rim and three insets designs painted in gold. This wonderful piece is signed by the artist George P Leach. Mr.Leach was a very successful Irish born artist who worked for Pickard in the early 1900's, then owned his own studio from 1915 until the 1920's. He is listed in the "Collector's Encyclopedia of Pickard China," by Alan B. Reed and is a well know china painter. There are no hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
Please see our other plates painted by Pickard Artists. They would look beautiful together as a grouping.
