Osborne was the only Chicago china artist of any statue to use his first name for his studio, Anglicized from Asbjorn (Norwegian). His career started working for other decorators/wholesalers, until he opened his own studio in 1910. His most prolific years extended into the mid-1920's.
This beautiful coffee set is the Rose & Daisy AOG pattern, circa 1920-1930. The AOG patterns were very popular and produced by other decorating studios, including Pickard, Stouffer and Wheeling Decorating Company. The set consists of three pieces; the coffee pot w/lid measures 9" in height, 8" from spout-to-handle and 3 3/4" in width; the covered sugar bowl measures 4 1/2" in height; 5 1/2" from handle-to-handle and 3" across; the creamer measures 3 3/4" in height, 4 3/4" from spout-to-handle and 3" across. Each piece is marked with scribed signature "Osborne", mark #3, 1917-1940. There are no cracks, chips, repairs or wear; very seldom is ever used. Lovely.
