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 Art Nouveau cabinet plate, circa 1910, is the product of a home studio. The artist took a white china blank and with three pastel colors and gold gilt created a simple, yet stunning piece of art. The plate is expertly decorated, in solid colors, with a ring of six, large, medium pink pansy blossoms, each with a single, pastel green leaf, highlighted with gold. The center of the plate is a soft buttery yellow and the wide, scalloped border satin gold gilt. Signed and dated on the reverse in gold "Secker 1910'. The coup-style plate measures 8 3/8" and is stamped in dark green ''M Z Austria" with logo, the mark used by Moritz Zdekauer, Altrohlau, Austria, circa 1884-1909. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Beautiful pastel shades and craftsmanship.
