White's Art Company, largely a family business of three sisters, Ida, Sarah and Ellen started in 1914 and continued until 1923. Identified as "china decorators" the business was largely on the student side and therefore few examples bearing the red triangle mark have survived. They were in competition with the best decorators of the era, Pickard, Stouffer, Brauer, etc. and had several of Pickard's artists work for them for a time.
This beautifully decorated cabinet plate has a cluster of nasturtium blossoms in variegated shades of rust-red and orange-red with shaded green leaves clinging to brown and green stems.
