Here is “Prairie Sundown” a portrait of a burrowing owl by nature artist John Seerey-Lester on a Spode bone china collector’s plate by the Hamilton Collection. Richly edged with gold enamel, the plate is 9 ½” in diameter and completely covered by the remarkably beautiful painting of a borrowing owl among cactus and grass out on the prairie with mountains in the background.
Underside of plate reads: The Hamilton Collection Presents Prairie Sundown by John Seerey-Lester From the Noble Owls of America Plate Collection Hand-Crafted in England by Spode 15,000 Worldwide Edition Limit Copyright 1986 by John Seerey-Lester. This is enclosed in a double ring of green inside the glazed table ring. No paper with this one.
This is a great find for a bird lover or a collector of fine china plates.
