Here is “Hiding Place”, a portrait of a northern saw-whet 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 beautifully printed painting of a sweet little northern saw-whet owl clinging to the safety of a large tree.
Underside of plate reads: The Hamilton Collection Presents Hiding Place 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. We have several of the plates in this lovely Owl series.
This is a great find for a bird lover or a collector of fine china plates.
