J.H.Stouffer Company, Chicago, was founded in 1905 and continued in business until 1952. Known as a premier china decorating establishment during the era of the other great Chicago decorating studios. Jacob H. Stouffer was the seventh of nine children, born in the village of Adeline in North Central, Illinois.
This lovely set of three coup-style plates, in three sizes, are adorned with shaded light to dark blue and white forget-me-not flowers, nestled among soft green leaves and floating blue pedals. The wide medium blue border is separated from the creamy center by a line of delicate floral and leaves. This style was made famous by the Minnie A Luken Studio of Chicago. The plates measure 8 1/4", 7 5/8" and 6 5/8" across. The largest and smallest plates were manufactured by Jaeger & Co., while the middle size plate is unmarked as to maker. All are stamped "Stouffer Studio", circa 1920-1924. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Would make a stunning wall or cabinet display. Great color.
