This is a vintage De Simone plate that measures 10 inch diameter and stands 1 inch tall. It is a big bold flower in the center of the plate in a bright orange color with a red center and brown seeds. There are leaves of brown and highlighted by the rim in bright red. The plate has a 2 inch closed crack on the front, that barely goes through the glaze and it is priced accordingly. It is otherwise in wonderful condition. The back is signed De Simone 6 h.
Note: Giovanni De Simone 1931-1991 was a versatile ceramist and painter whose works can be seen in museums around the world. Greatly influenced as a result of his extensive study with Picasso when he was a young man, De Simone developed bright colors and simple lines to portray his beloved Sicily and the Mediterranean. In 1953 he was the first winner of the Arte Applicata Regione Sicilia. In the United States his works are shown in Rockefeller Center Museum, The Gallery of Art at Connecticut State University as well as many public and private collections.
