The Bawo & Dotter Company was established in New York, NY in the mid 1860s to import and decorate fine porcelain, primarily from Limoges France, to North America.

The Elite Works was opened in Limoges in 1896 to both manufacture and also to decorate porcelain made by other factories. Their production included some of the most exquisite hand painted china, decorative pieces and jewelry /trinket boxes produced in this time period. Production was interrupted during the devastation incurred during World War One. Post- War, they were purchased by the Wm. Geurin Company, and continued to use the Elite marks until the company known now as Guerin, Pouyat- Elite closed on 1932.

This beautiful hand painted cabinet game plate portrays two large fish in shades of brown, rust, white and black, gently swimming through a wavy water background of light to medium green, blue green and yellow. Along one side are two variegated yellow and brown daffodil blossoms with long slender shaded green leaves. The scalloped embossed edge is trimmed with gold. The plate is artist signed 'Leona'.

The plate measures 8 3/4" across. It is stamped in green 'Elite L France" for the Bawo & Dotter factory; and in red with their decorating studio mark 'St Martial from the Seal of the City of Limoges', circa 1900-1914. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. .
