DESCRIPTION: This antique cabinet plate is another fine example of Pickard China artistry. HandPainted by Anton Berthold Beutlich, the piece decoration is ‘White Violets Linear’ with vivid accents in the art deco styling. The florals are true to nature with gold stems and surrounded by multi-colored green leaves outlined in gold. Each cluster of five flowers is separated by linear design and a single flower. The design repeats four times and four single white violets are arranged in center of the plate. Known to have a very steady hand, this talented Pickard artist has created a masterpiece on porcelain.
Anton Berthold Beutlich, born in Stavanger, Norway in 1870, was skilled in many china painting styles. He was also a canvas painter and portraitist and maintained a studio in downtown Chicago 1891 – 1913. With ambition and talent, his artistry is always very impressive.
WHY I LIKE IT: The art deco flair of bold lines and geometric shapes placed against dainty white florals is intriguing. This plate can also be found on page 200 of Alan Reed’s Collector’s Encyclopedia of Pickard China.
