A lovely scenic neoclassical cabinet plate, circa 1900-1920 era. The central scene depicts a man and woman being lead through a rocky passage by a nude, winged cherub holding a torch. The depiction of the three figures are a well executed transfer design, while the surrounding rocky terrain, native grasses and bright sky is hand painted in a pallet of naturalistic colors. The subject extends to the very edge of the gently scalloped and gold trimmed white-ware blank supplied by the Charles Martin Limoges Company and carries the company back-stamp, a flying bird between two banners w/Limoges France, used after 1891. The plate measures 10 1/4" across with no cracks, chips or repairs.
