Hand painted porcelain is so beautiful no matter if done in a factory, professional decorating studio or a small home studio environment. The overall quality of the piece is what really matters.
This lovely cabinet plate, circa 1915, is the product of a home studio. The white china blank is expertly decorated with shaded light to medium pink wild rose blossoms, yellow/russet centers and dark stamens along with unopened buds nestled among variegated light to medium green leaves. Interspersed are leaves in shades of tan, gray and blue/gray. The gold border is separated from the decoration by a delicate black scroll band. The artist's initials 'M. M.' faintly appear on the front. The coup-style plate measures 8 3/8" and is stamped in green with mark #3 ''Limoges - WG & Co. - France", the mark used by William Guerin & Company for white-ware, circa 1900-1932. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Beautiful pastel shades and craftsmanship.
