Hand painted china is beautiful whether executed in a factory decorating department, professional studio or home studio environment. This lovely cabinet plate has the rather unique honor of being decorated with a mistletoe motif. Mistletoe, the ornamental shrub associated with the Christmas Holidays and the Christmas tradition of kissing under the mistletoe. The plate is adorned with a large branch of the special white berries with stems and leaves in muted winter shades of green, brown and crimson. The background is a blend of pastel blue, blue/green and cream creating a great contrast. The initials of the artist "A.H." appear on the front and "Addie 1910" along with "Favorite Bavaria" mark on the reverse. The plate measures 7 1/4" across, has a narrow gold edge and has no cracks, chips or repairs.
