This lovely transfer pattern cabinet plate consists of an array of orange California Poppies with delicate shaded green foliage nestled among other small floral and ivy vines against a soft muted background of pale green and creamy yellow. The edge is trimmed with a band of gold and the plate is signed "Martin" for the original artist.
The plate measures 9" across and is marked for the Oscar & Edgar Gutherz Company of Alt-Kohlaw, Austria, circa 1889-1918. The hallmark in green is "O & EG" over a wreath containing "Royal" over "Austria". A ribbon mark "Hand Painted" also appears, which probably refers to the application of the gold trim. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Very attractive piece.
