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 beautiful cabinet plate, circa 1900, is the product of a home studio. The white china blank is expertly decorated with shaded pastel-to-deep pink wild rose blossoms, yellow stamens and opening buds, on long, thorn covered, crimson stems, nestled among rich shaded green leaves edged in crimson. The background is variegated hues of soft yellow, apricot, pink and blue, with the rim edged in gold. The unmarked plate measures 9 3/8" across and is initialed and dated on the back by the artist "C.K. - Dec. 1906". There is an impressed number "100". There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Beautiful motif.
