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.
These beautiful cabinet plates, circa 1900, were executed in a small home-studio environment by an accomplished artist. The blanks are decorated with a branch of lush ripe and ripening blackberries along with a cluster of newly opened blossoms to create additional fruit in the near future. The gorgeous foliage ranges from fall shades of variegated greens and browns, to light green and pale rust shades. The background is done in soft hues of the subject colors. The edges are enhanced with a band of gold. The plates measures 8 1/4" across and are stamped in green "D & C - France", which is the mark for Delinieres & Company, circa 1894-1900. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. There are (5) plates, each decorated the same and priced individually. Purchase as many as you wish; the entire group of five can be purchased for $275 and would make a wonderful wall display or used as luncheon or salad plates. Also have a matching 12" charger plate in my store.
