The artist has depicted beautiful ripe cherries along with their white flowers. He has made them look so realist you want to pluck them off their stems. He has added leaves with a touch of green and yellow that complements the green background around the red cherries. He has used a blue-green background around the flowers giving them their own little stage. Both background colors blend into a creamy ivory color for the remainder of the background of this beautiful little plate. He has completed this masterpiece with a decorative gold coin boarder on the scalloped rimmed mold. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc. The artist Edward Challinor was one of the most notable of Pickard artist. Challinor was a descendant from a family of Staffordshire potters. He served as an apprentice with the Royal Doulton Potteries in Burslem. He also studied at the Newcastle School of Arts in Staffordshire which was an auxiliary of the South Kensington School of Art in London. In 1903 he came to America to seek employment. Challinor found work in Chicago working for Pickard. Challinor, because of his considerable skills and prolific output tends to overshadow other Pickard artists.
