The White's Art Company, Chicago, Illinois, largely a family business of three sisters, Ida, Sarah and Ellen, was started in 1914 and continued until 1923. Identified as "china decorators", the business was largely on the student side and therefore few examples bearing the red triangle mark have survived. They were in competition with the best decorators of the era, Pickard, Stouffer, Brauer, etc. and had several of Pickard's artists work for them for a time.
This lovely hand painted cabinet plate is beautifully decorated with white tea roses with shaded green foliage against a blended green, cream and pink background with narrow gold edge. The plate measures 7 3/8" across and is stamped with the red triangle mark "White's Art Co. - Chicago - Hand Painted"; the marking is somewhat blurred. The plate is artist signed "POL"; the china blank is unmarked as to manufacturer. There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
